We Are Snapdragon was formed in 2012 by Cincinnati musicians Andrew Antle and Jon Evans. The band soon added Keegan Corcoran to the lineup as their versatile timekeeper and are often joined on stage by Michael Schenk of Build Us Fiction. The band takes influence from Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, and The National, but concocts its own unique, evocative sound that builds from ghostly, ambient dreamscapes into muscular, explosive Post Punk surges, with trippy electronic additives, quirky theremin squiggles and dance-friendly beats.
We Are Snapdraon recorded a live demo at Audio Grotto in Newport KY which they released in 2013.
Currently, We Are Snapdragon is working on new material for a debut album due out in 2015.
We Are Snapdragon has performed extensively in the greater Cincinnati area playing 20th Century Theater, Taft Theater, MOTR pub, Northside Tavern, The Southgate House Revival, Mayday Northside, Mainstay and The Drinkery. They've also broken into the festival scene playing both Bunbury and Midpoint Music Festivals along with acts such as The Breeders, The National, Fun, and MGMT.
