Engineered at Undercarriage Studios & Palace des Majique (Philadelphia, PA)
& Converse Rubber Tracks (Brooklyn, NY)



SON STEP is a unique collaboration based in Philadelphia, comprised of twin brothers Jon and Chris Coyle (vocals/synthesizers and bass), Joel Gleiser (vocals/electronics), and Matt Scarano (percussion).  In the business of importing/exporting off-kilter moods, dense & joyful rhythms, euphoric question marks for the ears, etc…


 “All of the band’s fragmented elements work harmoniously… Son Step has a firm understanding of their sound.” – Consequence of Sound

“Things bode well for their future sound explorations: trippy, atypical song structure, haunting beauty, playfulness with loops and circuital layering. Can’t wait to watch this band grow.” – PhillyNow

 “From the first urgent, syncopated drumbeat that kicks off Here Comes Dreamboat, the first full-length from Philadelphia-based four-piece Son Step, it’s clear the listener is in for a treat.  For any album, but especially for a debut, it is remarkably spirited and self-assured: it takes confidence to make music that resists classification as thoroughly this does. In an indie landscape peppered with dubstep and hazy, beachy guitar riffs, Son Step stands out.” 

- Alexandria Symonds of Interview Magazine

“Son Step caught me by surprise… An experimental Philly indie foursome that’s keen on using complex polyrhythm, restrained bass lines, hushed vocals, and lightly washed-out guitar… The band’s music stuck with me.” – Leor Galil of The Chicago Reader
