Distoria's debut EP is available everywhere:
"Exploding with the catchy sounds of melodic pop rock."
Piano rock trio Distoria spent months honing their catalogue of music into 5 cohesive songs before releasing their debut EP "The Periphery."
Seven tracks total, the EP includes an introduction and a bonus track
that are only available when purchasing the entire EP. With the support of their Kickstarter backers
, they were able to create an album that reflects the sound they had developed over several years of playing together.
Tim Lykins' acoustic drums and an 1875 Steinway grand piano played by Helena Martin drive the sound of the album, with Mor Mezrich weaving electronics and fuzzy bass guitar into this solidly acoustic base. Helena's vocal tracks are dry with a tinge of distortion, with "engaging lyrics" and "a chilling mix of anger and empathy
