Portland-based Vibrissae may call the Pacific Northwest their home, but all three members hail from different parts of the world. Those transatlantic roots show in the band’s sound. A cool mix of hazy post-punk, dizzying shoegaze, and electronic swells give the band an early 90s vibe that crashes with a post-modern aftertaste. Think Blonde Redhead, Cocteau Twins, and early Breeders coming together to bash you into blissful submission.
Imber Lingard, Emma Bell, and Aaron Bell came together in Portland with a shared love of shoegaze, electronic, and modern rock music. Lingard originally from Australia, Emma hailing originally from Malaysia, and Aaron Bell from the US. Vibrissae’s debut is the result of over three years of rehearsal and recording.

Born in the bosom of the Midwest, USA, J Hubner grew up in a woods next to a cornfield that was just a throwing distance to a lake.
Music has been a constant in J Hubner's life since he was a little kid soundtracking epic battles with Star Wars action figures with his older brother's Deep Purple, Megadeth, and W.A.S.P. cassettes. He started playing guitar at 12 and since 2006 has self-released 10 albums under the names Goodbyewave, Sunnydaymassacre, Dream District, and J. Hubner.
Three years ago J Hubner began writing about music independently. Album reviews, artist interviews, and general musings on his love of music. He writes at www.jhubner73.com, www.backseatmafia.com, and several smaller musical publications.
J Hubner is married with three kids and a miniature schnauzer named Otto. He still resides in the Midwest, USA. Near that same lake.
