Man Must Explore is an Experimental Rock trio based out of Albany, NY, originally started in 2019 to push musical boundaries through their signature cocktail of post punk and blues influences. With musical themes ranging from the infinite cosmos to shadowy depths of the human mind, they embody the words spoken by astronaut David Scott on the Apollo 15 mission; “I sort of realize there’s a fundamental truth to our nature, Man must explore . . . and this is exploration at its greatest.”

Man Must Explore is lead guitarist and vocalist Ryan Treen, bassist and vocalist Jacob Freedman, and drummer Ross Broady.





A Little Overboard is an explosive slice of alternative and indie-rock, flavored with a pinch of pop. Established in 2022, the 5-piece band that hails from Saratoga Springs NY is set to release its debut album “Lies Of Lovers” on 1/1/2023. Their new single “Goodbye For Now” sees the band set their stall out early and for all to see: a gorgeous piece of listening pleasure, with the lead singer’s voice playing an extremely important part in the band’s setup. Right from the opening bars, the soulful, gritty and captivating sound locks you in with its jangling guitars, emotional lyrics and a brooding melody awash with power and intensity. It sounds organic, classic and raw, and so unlike the over compressed rock recordings we are supplied with on a daily basis.

The arrangement of the layered guitars is a key piece of the puzzle throughout, growing and swelling over the record, and giving “Goodbye For Now” an immensely intoxicating feel. Whether or not you love this kind of music, you cannot dispute the absolute pulling power of this song.
