The spirit of Ida Bay emerged from a motionless Seattle, Washington dance floor in 2013. Initiated by Jesse Tiamson and Norman Tumolva to provoke their friends to dance, they wrote riffy guitar leads, approached Rita Laine Moore for synth sustains and dreamy vocals. Nick Barger added melodic bass lines, and Brad Robinson completed the outfit with thick rhythmic fills. This songwriting quintet is teen angst grown up and delivers unrefined, dancy rock with dark harmonies - or a sound that can be called their own. Ida Bay makes music for those who want to feel limitless and refreshed by nostalgia.
