f.o.c. is an alternative rock band from San Antonio, Texas. Their music has an ethereal quality that refines the rough edges of rock. They don’t stomp your face with bravado, distorted guitars, or double bass pedals, rather they hint at the beast hiding underneath the music. It breaths in the spaces between the sound. Its presence permeates. It waits to show its teeth, but it doesn’t want to frighten you, it wants you to listen. It lulls you into a place of serenity, with something waiting to be resolved. Nick Evans is the voice, Christopher Pate plays guitar, Scott MacWilliams plays drums, and Chris Kosiorek plays bass and keyboard. The songwriters are Evans and Pate. Their second album “Color Blind” was produced by David Percefull and recorded at YellowDog Studios in Austin, Texas in June 2014. It was released in December 2014. f.o.c. is short for First Order Condition, which was used as the band’s original name in 2011.
