"CALLS is a loop based post rock trio with some math rock influences. We are old friends who came together to do as much as we can with what little we had, and to chase a passion for connecting with people through live music. The band was formed by Josh McKinley while he was in college writing loop based post-rock music primarily due to a lack of people to write post-rock with otherwise. This developed into a method of songwriting and with the recruitment of life-long friend Mike Messina on drums CALLS was born. With the imminent release of the band's first album "Refloating" on October 15th, 2016, Joe Conserva was recruited on bass duties. After a few live shows, it was evident he was a natural fit for the group and is now a full-time member. Calls re-entered the studio in May of this year to track our new single "Clouds in the Caves" and now are going on their first US tour starting on May 24th and playing with bands like Glacier, Pray For Sound, Wess Meets West, Ourselves Alone and more. What began as a passion project has grown in to our humble movement to strengthen the post rock / math rock scene on long island and make Long Island a growing hot spot for the scene!
Clouds in the Caves is a single that captures the more moody side of our band while keeping with our theme of utilizing looping in a progressive manner. The music video released on May 1st fully captures the atmosphere of hanging at one of our local shows and vibing out with a bunch of musicians and artists who've come together to support each other.

Shores of Orion is an experimental post-rock project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions. After a debut with 'Saudade', Shores of Orion is back with their second full-length album 'The Courage Of Stars'. 'The Courage Of Stars' is a cinematic/post-rock album, consisting of 14 songs written in the period of last year. Every song on the album has a different feel that sets them apart from each other, and expresses a large spectrum of emotions. Experimenting with simple yet interesting and relaxing soundscapes was this album's focus and it shows throughout the album. It is simple in its arrangements yet expressive in its melodies. This album is dedicated to one of our close friends who we lost last year.
