Octopus Nebula attempts to create the kind of deep, multi-layered, psychedelic grooves that each of us, as individuals, has constantly sought but seldom found in many years of listening to music.
Our writing is intended to convey the sound and emotion of a place, and experience or a particular point in time, and touches on many different genres of music, without being a literal interpretation of any of them.
In this process, we make a conscious effort to avoid standard musical forms that have become clichéd or exploited to death by a thousand other bands... no well worn blues, rock or pop formulas and no techno flavor of the month, etc.
Instead of leading people by the hand through what they already know, we leave it to the imagination of the individual listener to conjure up their own imagery, words, and emotions.
Octopus Nebula started jamming in the basement fall of 2003.
Octopus Nebula as played Quixote's, Dulcinea's, Sancho's, Bushwackers, The Squire Lounge, and The Dark Horse. We are very proud to have played Mishawaka in Fort Collins.
