San Francisco-based Useless Desires is a four-piece alternative rock band that performs original songs with thought provoking lyrics and catchy grooves. The band is big into Napolean Dynamite and thought they would pay their respect. Lead singer and sole songwriter, Dave Shear absorbed music from The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Police, Nick Drake, The Clash, Radiohead, Weezer and Nirvana, among others, and hints of each help shape the Useless Desires sound. From the edgy guitar and bass driven songs to mellow piano driven songs, each has a unique sound that sums up the whole. The emotionally driven vocals can be both moody and seductive. These songs will undoubtedly draw emotion. Visit www.uselessdesires.com to hear more music or purchase the album raincoat or specific songs.
