THE MALLARD are an inside-out-echo-laser-garage-psych-rock trio from San Francisco. Their home fried songs harness the naked abandon of '60s punk (think earliest Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd), but inject the form with a deranged spirit all their own. Close attention to texture and dynamics allow the band to explore unusual terrain-to grant access into unexpected realms of beauty and terror... with dessert. GREER MCGETTRICK (guitar/vocals/drums) and DYLAN TIDYMAN-JONES (drums/keys/vocals) met playing music in Fresno, California, and later moved independently to San Francisco. McGettrick helmed the Mallard through several incarnations-and self-recorded an initial eight-song cassette tape-before inviting Tidyman-Jones to play drums with her in early 2011. Multi-instrumentalist DYLAN EDRICH (bass/guitar) came aboard in the autumn of '11, filling out the low end of the sonic spectrum and heightening the energetic synchronicity of the ensemble. The Mallard perform regularly in San Francisco (playing shows with Thee Oh Sees, Blasted Canyons, The Burnt Ones, and many others). Hold onto your ear-holes.
