Driftwood Pyre

Driftwood Pyre began in the winter of 2012, when producers Liam Watkins (First Communion Afterparty) and Aaron James (Rockinghorse People) found themselves in the midst of the Midwest's flourishing psychedelic scene. Rising from the ashes of their former projects, they built a studio in the Northeast neighborhood of Minneapolis and began recording what would become the seeds of the band's defining sound.

By the fall of 2012, they had enlisted Joe Werner (Bridge Club) and Jeanne Oss to further develop their recordings, and the final lineup was formed when Marie Debris found her way to the Twin Cities. In the time since, Driftwood Pyre has continued to evolve and cement its roots into the Minneapolis psychedelic/garage scene. The band released its self-titled debut album on EXAG records in 2014, followed by the Strangeways EP in 2017.
