Controlled Storms have been playing together in the Philadelphia area since 2006. Their sound is a kaleidoscope of drums, guitars, two basses, vocals, keyboards, samplers, and the occasional trumpet. Their music captures elements of rock, blues, electronic, world music, and jazz. Normally a three piece, on this night they were two. A very strong two we must add. Each took turns playing different instruments to pick up the slack. Ben moved through vocals, guitar, floor drum, and bass while Brandon played drum kit, sample machine, guitar and performed vocals.
We suspect these guys are even stronger with all three present but the two alone put on a great show for those in attendance at KFN on September 26th. Make sure you get out to hear Controlled Storms when you see them on an upcoming bill. Enjoy some of the footage we captured below:
