When Jeff Robbins, Linda Bean, and Robert Brazier began making music together in 2001 they had very little intention of repeating their past. As members of alt-rock band Orbit (A&M Records), singer Jeff and bassist Linda had chalked up a top 10 modern rock single, criss-crossed North America playing tons of festivals and club dates, and grown a large fan base. Robert had a similar experience drumming for Smackmelon (Relativity).

Inspired by electronic music and DJ culture they began to create atmospheric loop-oriented songs that fuse dreamy electronica with indie-rock. Gone was Orbitís wall-of-guitar sound, replaced with electric pianos and keyboards that intertwine themselves with bouncing basslines and breakbeats. Okay, you will hear guitars roaring in thereóthe music ranges from unabashedly romantic and uplifting to big beat block rock. The new band is called Well.

Described as Moby meets Foo Fighters, Well throws indie-rock conventions out the window incorporating audio tapes and synced video projections into their innovative and energetic live shows. Wellís songs are remixes of themselves. The rhythmically anchored arrangements are just as likely to feature a string quartet as an 808 drum machine. Brazier and Beanís circular rhythms range from sedate to sadistic and provide a solid foundation for Robbinsí strong, emotional vocals and textural acoustic and electric guitars.

Wellís debut CD The New Standard Biscuit is out now on Lunch Records. This 6 song post-rock EP picks up where Orbit left off, with electronic soundscapes against that famous Robbins wail. Well is currently performing throughout New York and New England. For more information about the band visit
