We Drew Lightning was created in Santa Fe, NM in spring of 2006 by Roland Ostheim and Michael Smith as a mutation of their former band, Derail. Currently the group consists of Roland Ostheim (vocals, guitar, bass, electronics, and trombone), Michael Smith (drums, electronics, and vocals), Lily Taylor (vocals, and keyboard), Stephen Canny (baritone guitar, and cello), and Vadi Grontis (visual projections).

It is the goal of We Drew Lightning to transcend genre, and create original music that pulls from various musical backgrounds by creating textured soundscapes along with visuals to bring the audience member on a journey. The group creates music that can be intensely heavy and complex, and at other times very minimal and soft by utilizing different timbres and styles such as psychedelic rock, experimental, and electronic. Many audience members have proclaimed that a We Drew Lightning performance takes you somewhere else.

We Drew Lightning is releasing a full length album entitled âSwimming with Orangeâ on High Mayhem Records in March of 2007, and recently performed at the 6th Annual High Mayhem Emerging Arts Festival to a very enthusiastic audience. This performance was also reviewed in the internationally published magazine Signal to Noise.

ââ¦they pounded a percussionistic war pattern so concentrated and passionate that it felt as if they were going to get up any moment and kick the shit out of each other. Pairing this with Rolandâs ambient vocals, reminiscent of an indiscernible Hope Sandoval, created a unique blend of trance-like adrenaline rage.â â J. Christopher Dupuy (Signal to Noise)
