In The Variant
Being "In The Variant" is a term we've coined to express the times in our lives where we step away from our norm- our comfort zones- and we branch out to other possibilities with creativity, love, thought, and so much more. Our music is as honest an expression of that concept as we can muster. Some of our influences are obvious and some not so obvious and it's within our own variant that we feel we've found a sound that embodies familiarity and comfort yet is unique and challenging for each of us. As selfish as any artistic venture is, we really do hope we can change a world view for people as we grow and learn from each other. Melting faces with some sick bass licks never hurt either!
After spending seven years in New Orleans immersed in the arts, Anthony Taylor has returned home and founded what has become one of the more creative bands in Colorado. Kongtoss (a reference to low grade Mardi Gras beads) could be described as somewhere between high-energy world music and heavy art rock. “My favorite response so far”, says Taylor, “is that I sound like Billie Holiday if she were a crazy white boy”. Completing the cast with authority are Shawn McGuire (percussion), Eric Davies (guitar), and Mike O'Neil (bass). In a musical landscape of homogenized commercials, Kongtoss has picked up the flag for anyone still interested in something different.
