Impuritan – an experimental rock three-piece from San Francisco – consists of Alex Eliopoulos (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), David Molina (guitar/bass/keys/electronics/vocals), and Pepe Abad (drums/percussion). Formed in 2011 by Alex as a solo recording project, the lineup soon bloomed into a musical collective. Current members are Bay Area residents with diverse cultural backgrounds from Greece, El Salvador, and Peru respectively.

The music's experimental nature allows for duo and trio performances by combining live instrumentation, loops, and samples to create lush walls of sound. Since 2012, Impuritan have performed consistently at music venues, art galleries, and outdoor spaces in the Bay Area – often with projections & visuals as an enhancement - and toured the US East & West coasts regularly, as well as Europe in fall 2017.

Impuritan have released four albums on Distant Spore Records (their own label). Their music has received consistent airplay on KALX, KZSU, KFJC, KXLU, and positive reviews from The Bay Bridged, Pow Magazine, KQED, and globally.

On their most recent album Altered Statues, Impuritan captures the quintessence of experimental rock by blending a wide foundation of post-rock with hybrid affection for psychedelic, noise-driven, and ambient sonics. The brief yet dense EP embraces an expansive range in 15 minutes – a burst of mind-bending feeling and a call to freedom through sound amidst a jaded modern age.

Impuritan is a sonic embodiment of life, death, love, hate, space, time, evolution and extinction. An abstract dream or visceral nightmare. In stereo. Wellspring eternal.
