The Galvanics blend classic- and grunge-era guitar rock, with a touch of funk, new wave, and psychedelia. Their songs wash audiences in melodic hooks, dreamy lyrics, and soaring solos.
The Galvanics are Mike Austin (guitars), James Capobianco (lead vocals), Carlos Cardenas (guitars), Chris Lawler (drums), and Colin Lukens (bass). Prior to forming the Galvanics in 2013, Mike was in the Boston band the Red Letters and numerous projects in Austin, TX. Colin answered Mike’s call for a bassist and, before joining the Galvanics, Chris played with Eyes Like Knives, whose last album Slow Distractions (Dopamine) and tour were described as “arresting ... a dynamic sonic assault” by the Boston Phoenix. In 2016, three became four with the addition of Carlos, who previously lit up stages and studios in his native Colombia. In 2018, the Galvanics welcomed classically-trained vocalist James Capobianco, ramping up the band’s drama and verve.
