Sticky Stranglets, a collective of Oklahoma-based artists/musicians formed in late 2009, consists of James Datis (Silent Martyrs) and Chris W. Cody (Asleep, Audience...Dream! + The Verdelaks) as it's core members, with Chris Gianettino and M. Sean Miller (Swill + Asleep, Audience...Dream! + The Verdelaks) emerging in growing rolls in the project.
The band combines thoughtful, emotional rock vocals with eclectic and heady Psych-Rock grooves and melodic tones.
