Blackberry Tongues is an experimental rock band based in Los Angeles, CA. Inspired by an array of different musical styles, including progressive rock, trip hop, doom metal, and 20th century classical, the sound does not lend itself well to genre-based classifications. It balances raw emotion and technique, instinct and intellect, and the feminine and masculine energies. Their first album, We Are Open Mouths, was released in January 2015, and has been described by contemporaries as “emotional groove,” and “dark but inviting”. Their subsequent recording project, entitled wallpaper music, is a series of five-song movements; the first of which is being released in July 2016.
