The band is fronted by Barry Pirkola and Jimi Cooper, with rhythm provided by Marvin Pomeroy. This week on The PlayList, we listen to the “out-of-this-world sound” of The Fractals, spinning a funky mix between beach-worthy beats and a space-age groove, sure to hit all the stops in between. Formed in 2003, the band members have shifted but the music remains an evolving beast of energy. Despite the changes, this band is no accidental collaboration of talent; each member brings a distinctly meaningful presence to the table. The sounds produced are enough to make you wish you were cruising highway coasts in a classic spy film.
