Fauna Shade

Fauna Shade is the music and sounds developed by frontman and Everett, Washington native Scotty Smith. Smith, now 21, combines psychedelia and pop sensibility from years spent experimenting, writing and recording tracks in his parents garage, located between the Puget Sound and Cascade Mountains. Joined live by drummer Richie Owen and bassist Derek Johnston, the band draws inspiration from early MGMT, Coco Rosie and T. Rex, while somehow forming a sound uncorrupted and free of pretense.
