Over the course of two albums and a third in progress, the Salt Lake City trio has refined their rowdy acoustic pop towards a leaner indie sheen, while never losing their signature sense of warm, all-in-this-together nostalgia and mega-melodic audio adventure.
Comprising three best buds – Montana Smith (vocals/guitar), Adrian De La Cruz (bass), and Brad Bennett (drums) – Cinders is out to conquer the world one irresistible tune at a time, befriending everyone they meet along the way. Their live shows are uniquely inclusive, interactive celebrations that lovingly blur the lines between performer and listener.
Cinders’ 2016 eponymous debut album was an instantly lovable, effortlessly danceable rush of acoustic guitar-driven indie-folk. Released later that same year, the Acoustics, Vol. 1 EP spawned surprise mini-hit “Unhinged.” Their 2018 sophomore album, Looking Forward to Looking Back, marked an organic evolution of Cinders’ boisterous sound shaped by countless live shows all over the U.S. and abroad. And now in 2021, Cinders is touring their brand new 3rd full length album, No One’s Home. Get ready to knock your socks off.
Inspired by the likes of The Front Bottoms, Grouplove, and Twenty One Pilots, Looking Forward expanded Cinders’ sonic palette while embracing some darker lyrical themes. Yet the record retained their charmingly wide-eyed and unrelentingly optimistic spirit.
