We first stumbled upon Small Souls two years ago during the second annual NPR Music Tiny Desk Contest. The opbmusic staff watched every single entry from the Pacific Northwest (170 from Oregon alone) and compiled this interactive map. At the time, this duo, comprised of Portlanders Brian Rozendal and Bryan Daste, made an impression on us with their entry to the contest.

Small Souls are set to release their sophomore album “Unheard, Unseen” later this year, and we are excited to share the record’s first single,”Existential Midlife Crimes.”

Smalls Souls play a free show at Secret Society in Portland on July 30.
