SET AND SETTING: Florida Instrumentalists To Release Tabula Rasa Full-Length
SET AND SETTING merge instrumental rock with a thick metallic edge with elements of drone and ambient music, the end result rendering a “captivating, wordless, genre amalgam (Decibel).” Since their debut album Equanimity (2013), the quartet has been ceaselessly active throughout the underground and extreme music scenes in the US and Canada. In 2014, SET AND SETTING released their second album, A Vivid Memory, via Prosthetic Records and continued to tour internationally and locally with bands such as Mouth Of The Architect, Eyehategod, Inter Arma, and Kayo Dot. 2016 brought a tough year of writing and recording while battling injuries within the band thus limiting live performances. One year later however the band released Reflectionless. Stereogum championed a record of, “melancholic beauty suspended in the clouds with a birds-eye view of epic terrain…,” further hailing its, “soul-searing leads and shimmering, bending guitars that convey feelings of wonder and introspection.” Alternative Press concurred, “This quartet has a gorgeous and unexpectedly heavy sound.” The record led to SET AND SETTING’s first ever tour of Europe which includes an appearance at the renowned Dunk! Festival.

Stephen Martines “Sounds Like Whiskey”
On his new single, “Sounds Like Whiskey,” Martines taps into the vulnerability and mistakes that heartbreak often encompasses. His voice, smooth and aching, belts effortlessly over the soulful chords of the explosive chorus. The singer taps into the frustration and pain that comes with trying to let go of someone you love but are unable to find the words to tell them how you feel.
