Herb & Jellyfish is a melancholic alternative rock Seattle band formed in 2017. The group consists of singer/songwriter/sax-player Bradford King, lead guitarist Andreas Laursen, rhythm guitarist Robert Woods, bassist Jason Andrews, and drummer Jake Brooks. Heavy guitar hooks are bolstered by complex rhythmic elements that allow melodic interplay between Laursen’s lead guitar and King’s sax and vocal lines. The band is influenced by the work of Muse, Morphine, Coheed & Cambria, and Rage Against the Machine. Their next album, Hustle, is scheduled for release in 2019.

After officially changing the name of the group Urban Jellyfish to Herb & Jellyfish in 2016, the new lineup released their first EP “Hispocracy” (with Dan Montgomery of Fast Nasties on drums and Jacob Doss of Letters From Traffic on bass) on May 1st, 2017. The group’s second EP “Hustle,” was released on May 4th of 2018 with a new lineup--Montgomery on bass and Brooks on drums--and showed a return to heavier rock roots. In June Dan Montgomery left the group and Jason Andrews filled the bassist role for the completion of the Hustle album due in 2019. Tracking, mixing, and mastering by Jason Lackie of Fastback Studios and Ed Brooks of Resonant Mastering has been instrumental (pun intended) to the groups sound development.

This band is not afraid to take risks, and the incredible work that they have produced with this EP [Hispocracy] is definitely worth checking out.
