Our latest winners of our AOTM poll, the Empty, produce a sound that is anything but musically void. The trio, comprised of Bobby Dezfulli, Sean Dant and Jacob Schmitt, have crafted their distinct balance between mood, melody and rhythm over the last 10 years that they've been in Portland's music scene.
Reverberated guitars, analog synths and beat machines lay the foundation for spurts of fuzzier vocal tones that all come together to create a mesh of indie, electronica and rock that is pleasurable to the ears both in headphones and live.
The Empty have already dropped a few tracks (and a couple accompanying music videos) from their upcoming post-summer release, which will be acting as the followup to their Lost Levels album from 2014.
