First Communion Afterparty


First Communion Afterparty was a psychedelic rock band based in Minneapolis formed in 2003. They are the perfect blend of shoegaze, garage rock, and psyche. 

Their music is dreamy and atmospheric, driven by hazy guitars and reverb-drenched vocals. Drawing inspiration from psychedelic rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s, First Communion Afterparty incorporated elements of psych-pop, space rock, and shoegaze into their sonic palette.

Intricate and hypnotic guitar melodies are layered with lush textures and swirling effects. The music has a raw and organic quality to it, with vocals were often ethereal and ghostly, blending with the music to create an immersive sonic experience.

First Communion Afterparty's shows were known for their energy and intensity. The band had a knack for creating a mesmerizing and immersive atmosphere on stage, drawing the audience into their psychedelic journey. Their performances often featured extended improvisations, showcasing their musicianship and the band's ability to create sonic landscapes in real-time.

Their music continues to resonate with fans of psychedelic rock and remains a testament to the psyche scene in Minneapolis.

"First Communion Afterparty's music belongs to a distinct family: psychedelic rock. It's true: there is no other honest way to describe it. The point is they belong. Their sound is built on psychedelic bands you've heard and some you haven't. There is nothing unfamiliar but there's a fresh personality behind it. With seven band members it would be easy to get tangled up in too many limbs, but that never happens. Each song is an artful balance of dual guitars, bass, keyboard, tambourines, drums, floor tom and vocals from all over." - Pulse
