PSYCHIC RITES

Dark dance trance

If you think of the band that you would least expect to come out of the Palouse, it would be Psychic Rites. But novelty isn’t what makes them good, isn’t what made them a 2012 Inlander Band to Watch: it’s their bizarro take on electronic music. Led by Mike Siemens, the band has evolved over the years from a quirky two-piece to a forceful, dark electronic trio that can get just about any room shaking in their shoes.
