Impuritan

promo

Impuritan is an experimental rock collective from San Francisco. It consists of Alex Eliopoulos (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), David R Molina (guitar/bass/keys/electronics/vocals, percussion), and Pepe Abad (drums/percussion). Formed by Alex as a solo recording project, the lineup soon bloomed into a core trio plus collaborators. Current members are Bay Area residents with diverse cultural backgrounds from Greece, El Salvador, and Peru respectively. David R Molina does most of the studio production and mixing. Mastering engineers include Bay Area legends Thomas Dimuzio and Mark Pistel.

Impuritan combines live instrumentation, loops, and samples to create lush walls of sound as a duo, trio, or more. Since 2011, Impuritan has performed consistently at music venues, art galleries, and festivals – often with projections & visuals. They regularly tour the US East & West coasts, and toured Europe in fall 2017.

Impuritan has released four albums on Distant Spore Records (their own label). Their music has received consistent airplay on KALX, KZSU, KFJC, KXLU, and positive reviews from The Bay Bridged, Pow Magazine, KQED, and globally.

Impuritan is a sonic embodiment of life, death, love, hate, space, time, evolution and extinction. An abstract dream or visceral nightmare. In stereo. Wellspring eternal.
