ABOUT DISTANT FAMILY AND ‘PENUMBRA’
Stemming from Boise, Idaho, Distant Family are cosmic jelly all the way in and all the way out. Composed of bone, blood, dirt and love that stretches from the shores of Japan to the dusty desert hills, they fuse different backgrounds into a cohesive blend of Japanese American psych surf indie art damage. They’re following up their 2019 debut LP Canopy with a new LP Penumbra, which delves even deeper into their uniquely crafted sound.
