Lead vocalist and guitar player Kris Butcher offsets inspired melodies and beefy guitar lines with sarcastic self-deprecating lyrics about self love and pacifism with a dark sense of humor, creating an album where "no one is safe." Yet underlying the bold and even sassy attitude of the songs is the sweet camaraderie of the close-knit band mates which comes through in their dynamic live performance. Kris and bassist Dave Pelusi met at a pool table in a mutual friends garage as teenagers and have since toured the world a handful times together in previous musical projects. Drummer Greg Anderson and guitarist Adrian Sanchez are both also accomplished musicians in their own right. The four of them all have been in and out of various musical projects with one another throughout the years but Kilo Bravo is the first time the four have joined forces to create their own music. “Good Grief” leans into pop sensibility but truly finds its voice in it’s fearlessness to be bold, whether it’s brought by way of a whisper like in Poles Apart or the aggressive irony of Zen. In a world that seems to be desensitizing us Kilo Bravo wants you to feel alive.
