Theoretics is a group of seven musicians that makes original music drawing equally from hip hop, soul, electronica, and funk. Fronted by two Emcee/Vocalists and backed by a five-piece rhythm section, the band makes use of its diverse instrumentation and effects to create dynamic music with creative and energetic lyrics.
In April of 2011, the band released their self-titled debut, consisting of original songs co-written by all seven members. The cinematic qualities of the music inspired director Garrett Gibbons to approach the band about collaboration on a music video. This first video, “Higher”, received acclaim for its blend of high energy live performance with an interesting story told through breakdancing.
Looking to outdo their first effort, Theoretics raised over $5,000 on Kickstarter for “Jekyll and Hyde”, a music video that uses horror and steampunk elements to create an original take on the classic story. “Jekyll and Hyde: the Music Video” premiered on Halloween weekend to an enthusiastic crowd and is now making its way across the web. Looking ahead to the future, the band continues to wow live audiences all over the Northwest with their live shows while writing a new set of material that will move the band into newer musical territories. .
