Stand Tall

“The debut LP from Kioea is dreamy psychedelic surf music that calls back to the ’60s while feeling remarkably contemporary.”

— Bandcamp, “New & Notable” (August 22, 2023)

Support for Stand Tall is provided by the American Rescue Plan Maine Project Grants, a sub-granting program administered by SPACE Gallery for the National Endowment for the Arts.

“Kioea’s sound is simultaneously modern and vintage.”

J. Swartwood, Aquarium Drunkard

“The gently authoritative sound of leader Carand Burnet’s surf guitar takes the listener on journeys of their own, all of which feeds a desire to hear more.

Jason M. Rubin, The Arts Fuse
