PK Review

Guest Author - Danielle Crowe

If you’re looking for a “folky” indie band, PK is definitely not it; these boys are indie rock through and through. For the past two years, the unsigned, five-piece rock band called PK has been touring extensively while on the long road to fame – and they are definitely on the right path.

Hailing from Templeton, California, PK includes band members Travis Hawley (vox), Matt Depauw (guitar), Nick Fotinakes (guitar), Mikel Van Kranenburg (bass), and Rico Rodriguez (drums). PK self-produced and released their fi¬rst full length album, entitled Into the Roaring, at a hometown venue called Downtown Brew in San Luis Obispo in 2010. Their latest EP, titled The Lost Boy Sessions, was released on May 29, 2012. As with many of PK’s songs, the lyrics are introspective and emotional. One song in particular called “Seawolves” (which is from The Lost Boys Sessions) is about the joyful uncertainty of being at that moment in one’s life when it’s time to give up on youthful rebellion and become an adult.

Although they don’t make punk music, they all have punk roots, so they love creating scrappy music that is always lively and upbeat, and they perform aggressive live shows with lots of energy. The band's power-pop anthems seem destined for stadiums versus small-town venues; however they love to play shows all over. Instead of doing like most bands and playing in a new city/town every night, PK stays put for a few days and plays multiple shows at various venues throughout the chosen location. They are even known for playing lunchtime shows at colleges and high schools during the week (while concentrating on larger venues during the weekends) so that they continue to build their audience with a younger age group as well.

Even after being recognized and published by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the top 16 unsigned bands in the nation, as well as winning a coveted New Times award for Album of the Year in San Luis Obispo County, PK is continuing to stay an unsigned rock group. In their opinion, being signed isn’t necessary at this time for them, and they are enjoying their independence as rockers.

For more information on PK, to listen to their music or check out their upcoming tour schedules, check them out on their personal website at www.pkband.com, or on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
