Biochemical Characters

“We’re scaling the barriers guarding the treasures of happiness,” says bassist Michael Gabler of the “aggressive Americana” band Biochemical Characters. What is aggressive Americana? “We toyed around with calling it ‘boreal spirituals.’ I think every band struggles with trying to name the genre.” The group is made of three hillsiders; two of whom are named Jay — Jay Sandal and Jay Walker. The band plans to release a single before Homegrown with the hope its Americana won’t be too aggressive for morning drive-time on KUMD.
