Today Bay Area's Try The Piedrops their stirring second full-length album, A Widening Burst of Forever via queer, independent label Get Better Records. 

Led by the self-taught San Jose-basedBean Tupou (they/them),Try the Piewas formed in 2006 and draws upon a Tongan-American and a Bay Area punk background to piece impromptu harmony, poetic imagery, soft guitar melodies, dissonance, and noise. These elements are used to create a sonic collage-work to provide vivid storytelling. The band has since grown to includeNick Lopez (he/him,Ugly Winner) on drums,Bailey Lupo (they/them,Scowl) on bass, andLaine Barriga(they/them,My Friend,Oka Sun) on guitar. Most of lead singer Tupou’s music is based heavily on mixing present and past experiences with both country, indie and Polynesian-influenced songwriting, inherited histories, and oral storytelling of a poetic nature.
