On July 21, Austin rockers The Steps will release Take It All In, produced by Chris “Frenchie” Smith (JET, Dandy Warhols, Explosions in the Sky). The EP distills the band’s 60’s influenced garage rock to its most potent and frenetic form.
Taking their amps from the garage to suburban rooftops and downtown bridges, the brash four of The Steps demand to be heard. Invoking the spirit of Brit-pop, their sound is laden with a rich musical heritage that fuses styles of proto-punk and modern glam-rock. The Steps have burst onto the scene with the swagger of seasoned rockers. Cousins Will (vocals/guitar) and Sam Thompson’s (guitar) fervor for classic rhythm and blues styles drew bassist Stephen Ross and drummer Z Lynch into their after-school garage sessions in 2005. The Steps began their aggressive climb to the top, quickly becoming the dominant band at their high schools. Honing style and stage presence at house parties across Austin, The Steps’ blend of classic and modern mesmerized adoring peers.
