Mammoth Exploration Society channels the sounds of New York Shoegaze and the '80s Manchester scene with a new flavor. Drummer Tony Tran keeps a heavy groove beneath droning guitars playing a retro Ludwig kit with a massive bass drum. Tony creates emphasis to break through intricate guitar patterns and swarms of reverb.
