Formed as John Graney's attempt at creating a contemporary version of a classic surf band, The Californian has slowly evolved into John Graney's attempt to maintain sanity. Though it no longer can be called a surf band, or hardly even a band, The Californian can be counted on to make loud noises and pretty noises. This is the era of the internet - The Californian should be listened to and not read about - don't read bios or interviews or reviews. Go listen for yourself on Spotify, or Rdio, or iTunes, or whatever and decide for yourself what The Californian is.
