As humans we often second-guess ourselves on the decisions that we make and the career paths we choose. For Impel, that questioning has never ceased to exist. The members of Impel range from producers to recording engineers to session musicians; amalgamating into a band whose style bleeds ambition and a drive that simply cannot be denied.
Impel is an intelligent blend of alternative rock, ambient atmospheres, and soulful catchy melodies. Together, they bring something that's infusing pieces of each genre that strikes an original and positive message that is relatable to everyday life. Originality is a trait the band strives to excel in, and is receiving amazing feedback.
In 2007, they have so far been featured on the Howard Stern radio network, as well as receiving over 135,000 votes to become an MTV2 On the Rise finalist. In becoming a finalist, the band has been rewarded a segment on Time Warner Cable's On Demand MTV section.
"Impel finds their uplifting spirit in the city of lost angels. This is an amazing band with a powerful ambient style of rock that sends those Coldplay like chills of inspiration down your spine in a Perfect Circle sort of way. Their music is simply a shining light through layers of darkness that pulls the soul into imagining so much better things. We look forward to hearing more from Impel; They're a major label away from being an overnight success." â usa4real.com
