Side-B is a 4-piece alternative rock band from Albany, New York consisting of drummer Dylan Travison, guitarist AJ Horton, bassist Eric Mitchell, and vocalist Ian Justino.
The group formed in their early teenage years and began performing at local music venues across the Capital Region. They bonded over a shared love for classic rock acts like Led Zeppelin and The Police along with modern alternative bands like Weezer and Vampire Weekend.
Side-B released their debut, “The Low Budget Romance EP,” during the members’ senior year of high school. It consists of the first four songs that the band ever wrote together and it shows the progression of developing a strong, unique sound that alludes to the band's future musical direction.
In 2020, the band took advantage of social media to connect with new audiences and continued to work on new music. They finally began the process of recording a sophomore release in August, and after a long and complicated creative process their newest song is now available for your listening pleasure.
