Cobalt Cranes began in an apartment in Los Angeles when Tim and Kate started making bedroom recordings. Rooted in 60's garage rock and 90's grunge, Tim and Kate recorded an EP and hit the road, touring the West Coast. When they got home they set to work on their first full-length album "Head In The Clouds". These first two releases quickly caught the attention of LA Record, LA Weekly, The Fader and more.
Cobalt Cranes spent much of the last year on tour, and began writing new songs in small motels and roadside diners on the road. The band released their new album "Days In The Sun" on Echo Park's Lolipop records, and call their new sound "California Grunge". This past year Cobalt Cranes have shared the stage with bands like Thee Oh Sees, The Coathangers and The Spits. Now the band is back in the studio recording their new album with Producer Alain Johannes, who has worked with Queens of the Stone Age, Mark Lanegan and Them Crooked Vultures.
