Caleb Nichols, Dominic East, Pat Spurgeon
Churches is the new recording project of Caleb Nichols, the frontman of Oaklandâ€™s Grand Lake, former bassist of Port Oâ€™Brien, and touring member of WATERS and Release The Sunbird. On his first single, â€˜SAVE MEâ€™, Nichols teams up with WATERS frontman Van Pierszalowski and Rogue Wave drummer Pat Spurgeon. Oslo-based WATERS guitarist Nikolai Haukeland also plays. The result is two and a half minutes of melancholic, fuzzed-out power-pop, with obvious nods to heroes Smashing Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr. and contemporaries such as Wye Oak.
