Sun Gods To Gamma Rays have made quiet strides over the past year, first as a vehicle for frontwoman Brianna Kocka's solo project Caetani, and now as a fleshed out quintet.

Their ethereal sound, at once combining a lead voice reminiscent of Feist, as well as slow-churning melodies characteristic of Portishead, have given Sun Gods To Gamma Rays a nice jumping off point in the Twin Cities music community.

The band is celebrating the release of their debut EP, The Water, The Wave. For this Local Show session, they talk with David Campbell about cosmic influences, how to turn slow songs into a captivating live show and more.

Songs performed: "Not Worth Anything," "You Thought You Had It All" and "Burn Me Through"
