Growing up close to Hollywood, the people of Clear Static initially emerged together when a lot of the quintet’s members had been barely within their teens. Pre-adolescents Tom Pederson (vocals) and Michael David (acoustic guitar/synth) became close friends at a community party and quickly began writing tunes together. With time, they made a decision to increase their burgeoning music group to included Pederson’s old brother Wealthy (bass) and grade-school close friends Danny Kincaid (acoustic guitar) and Jacob Shearer (drums). Like many youthful musicians, many of Crystal clear Static’s members began whetting their musical palates in the realms of punk — however in their need to be even more capable musicians, the people had been soon attracted to ’80s rings just like the Fixx, Nude Eye, and Roxy Music. This sort of music ultimately influenced Crystal clear Static’s maturation right into a stylish music group that boasted a high-fashion attitude and retro-rock audio with today’s twist. Crystal clear Static began gigging around city when a lot of the bandmembers had been around 13, advertising themselves with self-designed, Photoshop-executed posters unlike the most common handwritten fliers of their peers. Initially, their youngsters limited the group to playing exclusively all-ages venues. Nevertheless, as their recognition grew with every demonstration sold, clubs just like the Viper Area, the Key Membership, as well as the Troubadour had taken a pastime in reserving them aswell. Crystal clear Static had been also asked by among their idols, Duran Duran, to open up several U.K. and U.S. schedules on their behalf in early 2005. That same calendar year, the group started documenting its self-titled debut, that was released in-may 2006 on Maverick.
