About iNFiNiEN
Philadelphia based Experimental Progressive band. Exotic tonalities and thick chords mixed with Jazz, African, Balkan, Pop, Rock and Indian Music.
Philadelphia-born iNFiNiEN combines eclectic musical personalities into a visionary, unified force. Using rock, jazz, soul, world, and classical influences, the quartet plays intricately composed songs with a focus on improvisation. With two albums under their belt the band has found it’s niche as something truly unique within the Philly and National scenes. After playing, touring and writing together for six years, iNFiNiEN has developed their distinctive voice through their consistent dedication to powerful live shows and bold experimentation in the studio. Far from the typical rock band, they explore new territories of sound by using exotic scales, chords, and rhythms. The drums project driving tribal beats, mixing elements of hardcore, funk, and jazz as bass grooves move through a complex and fluidly changing web of pulse. The guitar and keyboard create a wash of texture, deep harmony and colorful melodies while fluid female vocals add a strong emotional element through soulful poetry and deliberatedynamics. Taking cues from all over the music world, their compositions borrow equally from romantic composers like Debussy and Faure; contemporary artists like Bjork, Tori Amos and Radiohead; world music like Indian Classical, African, Middle Eastern and Latin; and even adventurous avant-garde fusion like Mahavishnu Orchestra, John Coltrane and John Zorn. An entity unto itself, iNFiNiEN stirs listeners through a moving musical adventure.
What The Critics are saying about  iNFiNiEN
“Calling it “fusion” isn’t even entirely correct, since that smacks of cocktail parties and easy-listening boredom. This is the sublimation of styles, a group of highly trained players sacrificing their training for the sake of something more exciting.”
– Philadelphia City Paper
“iNFiNiEN’s set is dynamic and energizing, with Loftus rolling her head and emoting like a languid seductress. The music is moody, jazzy, lounge-y and dramatic, with dissonant chords resolving into melody and tinkering Middle Eastern sounds. For most of their set, they’re joined by New Orleans saxophonist Kyle Cripps, whose jazzy playing adds another layer to their sonic creations. Their last track, “Perpetual Twilight,” is 10 minutes long, and devolves into a raucous, thrashing collage of sound. It’s the perfect end to a long evening, and I leave feeling like the possibilities for music are truly infinite.”
