Human Condition, The
With their mesmerizing melodies, entrancing riffs, and heart-pounding beats, it is no wonder that The Human Condition is one of the most enthralling bands in the local So. Cal. circuit. The band brings a truly unique sound, blending modern post-punk alternative rock with various other styles such as funk, art-rock and grunge. Although each of their songs delivers catchy hooks that are well remembered, none of their songs sound the same.
The Human Condition consists of Matt Ardisson on guitar, Eugene So on bass, Chandler May on vocals, and Badger on drums,. Each member puts his heart and soul into the music that makes up The Human Condition. Influences of the band include Chili Peppers, Pink Floyd, Incubus, and Nirvana.
The band formed in 2002 when Matt and Badger left their metal band to pursue a new more melodic project. They soon found singer/front man, Chandler, who blew them away with his tight melodies, ingenious lyrics, and unusual stage antics. Only two weeks later bassist Eugene So jumped aboard, stunning the band with his aggressive bass licks and enthusiastic on-stage performance.
The Human Condition puts on an action-packed performance that seems to allure their audience into a trance-like fascination. Their wild singer/front man, Chandler, engages his audience with an eyeful of untamed animation and enthusiasm that is simply indescribable. The energy-filled live performance only adds to the sheer brilliance of the music. With all this said, it is no wonder that The Human Condition captivates its audience with each and every performance.
