bio

Formed in the Summer of 2010 in the small town of Longmont, Colorado, One Flew West has grown from a high school garage band into a full-scale rock machine storming up and down the front range. Now based in Denver, the four-piece has made a lasting mark on the local music scene and look to make that mark on the national scene in the near future. Uniquely combining rock and roll with various aspects of folk, pop and punk rock, there are few bands out there that sound like One Flew West making it difficult to fill in the cliché definition of, "They sound like so-and-so". The band has been recognized by numerous US-based radio stations and publications as a soon-to-break-out artist including Alternative Press, idobi Radio, and more as well as the UK's Kerrang Radio. Known for their high-energy live shows and multi-dimensional songwriting, One Flew West has built up a dedicated fan base and is on their way to the national touring circuit. Their Selective Memory EP came out in October of 2015 and instantly made a splash throughout Colorado and into the Rocky Mountain region. In the spring of 2017, the band released two singles, "All In My Head" and "Ten Years Later" to glowing reviews leaving fans and the community eager for more. Late 2017 saw the most successful release yet with the first single from the One Flew West’s 2018 EP, ‘Trial And Error’.

Colorado pop/rockers, One Flew West, are back with their second EP, ‘Trial And Error’. After an extremely lucrative release of the lead single and title track, this is sure to be their biggest most impactful release to date. The track has been featured by notable publications including Alternative Press, idobi Radio, and New Noise Magazine as well as been added to Spotify-curated playlists The Scene and Pop Punk’s Not Dead among many others. The EP centers around the idea of honesty and not beating around the bush when it comes to one’s outlook on life. From saying “F*ck you!” to the bad things that are happening in society, to not giving up on your hopes and dreams, there’s a little something for everyone on this collection of punchy and succinct songs. One Flew West’s ‘Trial And Error’ represents a metamorphosis for the band. It appears that they’ve found their sweet spot sonically that uniquely falls somewhere between pop/punk and folk rock.

"Pissed off at our political climate? Ever want to scream out “fuck you!” to our President? Look no further than One Flew West’s latest EP, Trial and Error – a punchy, no-nonsense creation that isn’t afraid to say what many of us are already thinking. With commentary on our current state of affairs, as well as other themes including the impending doom of adulthood or being an antisocial home-body, the EP articulates everything one could feel being a young adult in America."
