All the Apparatus
All The Apparatus began shaping their act on the sidewalks of Waikiki where they entertained passersby and learned how to make the street their own personal stage. Their style has been called many things, perhaps the most concise of which is “Grand Eclectic” as the band tries to incorporate a little bit from each genre of music they come across into their ever evolving sound. One Honolulu newspaper even called them, “Honolulu’s own Arcade Fire.” It’s a sound that is easily compared to bands like Gogol Bordello, The Decemberists, Devotchka, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Ryan Barber inherently writes folk songs about love, depression and desire, but he had the urge to make people move in a way folk songs simply couldn’t do. He had the need for his lyrics to smoothly float over a lush bed of instruments and heady dance driven rhythms. Teaming up with friend Larson Haakenstad and producer, Randall Dunn, the sound of Headwaves was created over the period of two years.
