Morrison Graves is a neo-psych rock band from Portland, Oregon (USA). Their moody, fuzzed-out, sound draws influences from late 60’s fuzz and garage, surf, psychedelia, and indie rock. They infuse these atavistic leanings with heavy saturated guitars and metalgaze drone reminiscent of The Black Angels and Dead Meadow. Pre-doom.
The band's debut album “Division Rising” is a 12-track concept album about gentrification, homelessness, displacement, and socio-economic gaps — issues that currently plague Portland and many other cities across the world. Made during the height of the pandemic, Morrison Graves churned out a well-recorded and focused debut. With songs about falling out of love with a city on fire, being lost to the seams of space, and corporate greed, this psych-surf landscape has drawn comparisons to The Doors, The Black Angels, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Screaming Trees.
Division Rising is available on LP, CD, cassette, digital, and streaming on all services.
