"Guest Directors’ debut EP 'These Beautiful Things' is jam-packed with ear-caressing reverb-soaked soundscapes, toned-down and mood-setting vocals, and really sharp songwriting all throughout its four tracks." - Northwest Music Scene
Guest Directors started as a casual side project between members of current Seattle bands The Navins, Mutiny Mutiny and These People Here. As collaborations turned into songs, long-time guitarists stepped up to singing roles and a sound started developing. Elements of post-shoegaze rock, dream pop, power pop and noise all make an appearance, but the songs don’t fit easily in a specific genre.
Sounds like: raindrops beating up evergreens.
For fans of: spooky soulful music, guitar interplay, female vocals, effects pedals, fireflies, alien blips and elliptical distortion fog.
