Say Hi simultaneously defies and enforces physics. We're the mumbling in your head while you're crunching the numbers. We're the apparitions, ticks, gut wrenching, suspicion and glee too. We're the reason you rolled a nineteen for charisma, the cat's meow, your least favorite aunt. Touch us and we'll touch you. Watch us and we'll watch you. You once tried to call us and the line was busy, but that was actually just us making busy signal noises with our mouths. If you would have called back we would have cooked you some pasta. What you're looking for right now is going to evade you forever. Fish don't speak but squirrels do. It all depends on your longitude. You should start from the beginning, but ignore the prequels. We like minimalism, broken robots, granny smith apples, sneakers and the mundane...
Philly-based popsters the A-Sides formed in 2002 and rapidly proceeded to do a bunch of things right. Their first 7" single (on Scranton, PA's Prison Jazz Records) was plucked up by Rough Trade in the U.K. and garnered the group oodles of nice press stateside. Producer Brian McTear (matt pond PA, Mazarin) took notice as well and helmed the group's first full-length, Hello, Hello, which pushed the A-Sides' eclectic pop sensibilities even further forward in 2005. With the lineup of Jon Barthmus (vocals/guitar/keys), Mike Flemming (bass/vocals), Patrick Marsceill (drums/vocals), Charlie Cottone (guitar/vocals), and Christopher Doyle (keys/guitar/percussion) firmly in place, the A-Sides continued to increase their radio and touring presence.
