Petaluma is a musical ensemble from Sacramento, CA. The group was founded by multi-instrumentalists Rob Habel and Patrick Sweeney, who have been collaborating within various projects since high school.
The duo convened in late 2013 to begin writing and recording new material after having recently split from previous bands. While Rob had a desire to attempt composing material outside of his usual genre of psychedelic rock, Patrick was looking for an excuse to try experimental recording and production techniques.
Their shared love of experimental hip hop, electronica, and psychedelic pop formed the foundations of the deeply layered sound that became Petaluma's self-titled debut.
While Petaluma's first album prompted more questions than answers, "Noise & Fury" is an absolute declaration. From the disillusioned ending of Fury - "I'm done pretending there will come a day when life won't hurt at all..." to the final anti-apology of Dark - "I am nothing more than what I've found. I can't ever be sorry for who I am not somehow," the five song EP is unwavering in its dedication to delivering hard truths to anyone on the road to self actualization. This sound still has some room to grow, but if "Noise & Fury" is any indication, Petaluma is up to the challenge.
Petaluma was founded by multi-instrumentalists Rob Habel and Patrick Sweeney. Their debut album of the same name spawned from a place of sonic exploration that results in an altogether eclectic sound. Dark, ambient, and oddly calming, Petaluma's music is as impossible to resist as it is to pin down. The band’s latest album, “Noise & Fury” is no exception, as it takes cues from shoegazers and DJs alike. The compositions dance between abstract pulses and blips to crashing waves of distortion, but while retaining a naked authenticity.
