Patchable 0008

Band names are something we’ve all tried to come up with at one point or another. Sometimes, there is little connection between the music and band name, for example Arctic Monkeys. They could easily be be a swing band or disco. Then we have bands like Metallica, which is indisputably metal. Regardless, band names inspire mental imagery in the listener. In this Patchable we explore the music of bands that do not exist.

THE CHALLENGE
