Faulkner: bicoastal alt-rock band with a literary name

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Meet Faulkner, a rising California band with New York roots. The anthemic alt-rock group, who was missing their guitarist Lucas Asher at the time of our interview, formed out of Venice Beach last year. They've been bi-coastal ever since, finding reprieve from the uber-competitive L.A. music scene with shows at the Mercury Lounge and Webster Hall in New York.

The group first caught the attention of Grammy-nominated producer Mark Needham, who's worked with Imagine Dragons and The Killers.

Faulkner's operatic fusion of rap and rock also attracted hip hop icon and Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA, who lends some Empire State street cred to their single "New York Anthem."

On the rock side of things, Faulkner draws from a diverse selection of personal influences without imitating them classic rock David Bowie, Paul McCartney, John Paul Jones, and Dave Grohl -- resulting in a reverent sound that's all their own.

The lineup:

Lucas Asher

Eric Scullin

Dimitri Farougias

Christian Hogan
