Character - We Also Create False Promises

CHARACTER
WE ALSO CREATE FALSE PROMISES

Fictitious Records

If you were to take a bowl of jazz and pour it over a slice of analog keyboards, add some guitars, perhaps a Ride album rewritten by Tortoise and shake it up like a snow globe, you might come up with Character. Unlike many instrumental bands, Character are smart enough to not drive every song into epic territory. Rather, they give each song its due without rolling you off into boredom. It is experimental in nature but also rooted in traditional pop which should keep the easily-scared listener and the overly anxious entertained.
