batteryboy has burst onto the Minneapolis music scene with an emotionally charged three-piece act that truly has a sound of it’s own. With intimate, hope-filled lyrics that leave no emotional stone unturned, batteryboy’s unique mix of orchestral folk and indie rock was perhaps best summed up by Sianet Radio’s Daisy Mazy: "batteryboy has a way of mixing soothing melodies with pulsing beats to create a unpretentious, orchestrated blend. While the guitar is comforting, the drums produce an anxiety ridden anticipation. This is music that inspires others to write."
Originally a solo project by Cobey Rouse, batteryboy has grown to include vocalist/violinist Shannon Frid (Cloud Cult) and keyboardist/guitarist Eric Carranza. Frid and Carranza are the perfect, polished complement of beauty and composure to Rouse’s frantic display of acoustic guitar strumming, heartfelt vocals and pedal-pounding of his three floor drums.
They recently released their first single, “winter’s gate,” from their forthcoming album due June 2013.
