The-Eyebrows got their name from a Frank Zappa quote where the subversive genius was describing what separates some songs from the rest, “The computer can’t tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what’s missing is the eyebrows.”
The-Eyebrows songs are far from Zappa’s work, and reside more in the lines of quirky rock being compared to Talking Heads, The B-52s, Pylon, REM and Devo, and at other times living in the atmosphere one would expect from LCD Soundsystem, The Modern Lovers, My Bloody Valentine or The Jesus and Mary Chain.
The band consists of long-time pals Jay Garrigan (vocals, guitar) and Shawn Lynch (“drummist”, vocals) along with cohorts Molly Poe (synths) and Jon Lock (bass). Jay and Shawn are also members of Temperance League (keys/bass and guitar, respectively), and have been playing together since 2000 with their band Poprocket and Garrigan. Jay met Jon in 2015 as they were asked to be house musicians at a local benefit, and clicked soon after Jon realized “Jay’s songs don’t suck.” Jay also recruited their favorite bartender Molly to play keys, or maybe Molly recruited Jay. This is Molly’s first band!
The-Eyebrows have finished tracking their first record, and are currently mixing with legendary REM producer Mitch Easter at his Fidelitorium sound studio. Two tracks have been mastered by Greg Calbi out of Sterling Sound in NYC, and these two songs are currently being prepared for the band’s first 7” release.
