Based in Portland, Oregon and influenced heavily by their mutual love of jangly '60s psych, The Reverberations began crafting their authentic sounds in 2015. Led by guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Dave Berkham (formerly of The Cry!), who met rhythm guitarist John Jenne (ex-Sundaze and White Swans) and drummer/percussionist Ian Bixby (ex-Go Fever and Errata Note) while playing in a '60s cover band, the group subsequently added Cameron Mazzia (Dave's former bandmate in The Midnight Callers) on bass and Bob Fountain on keys to form The Reverberations. Inspired by a fictional psychedelic experience (with all the exciting highs and mellow lows), 'Milder Higher' marks a new, more complex direction in The Reverberations' sound. With interesting time changes, Leslie vocals and a reversed lead fuzz guitar, the song evokes bands as diverse as The Beatles and The Peanut Butter Conspiracy.
Like the A-side, 'Sunshine' was recorded in early 2019 by the legendary Matt Rendon at Midtown Island Studios in Tucson and recorded to 8-track tape for a classic approach and feeling, with backing vocals done as three-part harmonies around a single microphone. The recent addition of keyboards to The Reverberations' lineup brings an essential psychedelic element to the song, and the band.
