Science! NEW Single 'Shuksan'
Science! is the award-winning acoustic duo comprised of Justin Stang and Jim Elenteny from the Pacific Northwest. Their first studio debut EP includes Blind Melon's, Glen Graham on drums and their music has been featured on PBS Television's Roadtrip Nation. Moreover, they were awarded the Weekly Volcano's 2013 Best New Record, 2012 Best New Band (Olympia, WA) award and are what Quyen Shanahan (of WXPN, Philadelphia) is calling "Riveting acoustic music...a perfectly simple, universal and truthful roots band." They were featured in High Times Magazine as the "Unsigned Band of The Month". Their witty and fun tune about Seattle ("Seattle Song") was the anthem on Jet City Stream with Marco Collins and Shawn Stewart and was named one of their "Best New Tracks of The Week". It has also been featured on KING 5 TV- Seattle's New Day Northwest, Evening Magazine, The Bob Rivers Show - (95.7 KJR FM Seattle) and The Marty Riemer Show.
Science! are known for both their exhilarating live shows with simply two guitars and vocals, as well as their rockin’ full band, when the venue calls for it. Whichever way you are lucky enough to catch them perform, they are mesmerizing, engaging and musically unforgettable. Although based in the Northwest, they have been touring quite extensively building their fan base, with a recent tour along the West Coast, performances at SXSW and a growing fan base on the East Coast, as well.
Their first song for London Tone Music’s 52x52 label launch is called Shuksan, named for a beautiful mountain in Washington State. The song is about loss and hope and it features solid songwriting, Justin’s raspy, mellow vocals, multi-instrumentalist, Jim, on guitars and various keyboards and Don Dieterich on drums.
