Ancient Heat, hailing from Portland, Oregon, is a 10 piece ensemble with a truly unique sound. Their music is described as a mix of "west coast funk, disco and R&B, merged with the infectious polyrhythms of African and Brazilian pop and a healthy dose of psychedelia." As genres go, Ancient Heat is truly a melting pot. They formed in 2010 thanks to ultra talented producer Brendan Grubb.
Ancient Heat's latest single "Smoke and Mirrors" is off of their self titled full-length album. Their latest release is described as "a small opera within one song, which finds its way to an emotional peak that sonically surrounds you until you have to break free!" Ancient Heat will be celebrating the release of their latest album this Saturday, August 15 at Star Theatre in Portland. If you live near the area, stop by and celebrate with the band in person.
