Mobilities is a band that aims for their namesake: an ever-changing flow of ideas, creating sound waves that move the body and mind. The goal is, and always has been, to showcase a variety of original music. Mobilities is a four-piece rock band that experiments with a range of genres including rock, indie, punk, post-rock, and psychedelic rock. Mobilities draws influence from bands like The Mars Volta, Incubus, White Denim, Wand, Queens of the Stone Age, Portugal. The Man, Tame Impala, Thee Oh Sees, Bon Iver, The National, and many others. They have been adding their sound to the Portland music scene since March 2016.
They released a 3-track self-titled EP, recorded in their house, all DIY. The debut album, Time Hasn’t Swallowed Us Yet, was recorded with Adam Pike at Toadhouse Studios, and released on February 21st, 2018. In 2019, they had two official releases, Sprout City Sessions, a live set of new and old songs recorded live with Sam Lay at Sprout City Studios in Eugene, OR, released on May 6th 2019, and an EP titled, Something's Right, recorded at dB Nation in Portland, OR, released on July 12th, 2019.
Mobilities is Eric McCauley on vocals and guitar, Brett Sparrey on vocals and bass, Adam Durkee on keys, synth, and guitar, and Logan Gardner on drums. Brett and Eric formed Mobilities after their previous band, Strange Habits, called it quits before releasing their last album titled, Fear of All Fools. The summer before the band's inception in the fall of 2015, Eric met former drummer, Derick Thomas, at a campsite on the Oregon coast while playing a guitar. Meanwhile, Brett was introducing Adam Durkee to the first demos that would lift the band off the ground. After two years and three releases, Derick Thomas decided to pursue other endeavors, and Logan Gardner filled his place on the throne in December of 2017.
In the aftermath of Logan joining the band, Mobilities completed two West Coast US tours, in 2018 and 2019. They can be found playing shows all around the Pacific North West, with plenty of new music on the horizon.
