Rhododendron is a band from Portland, Oregon. Formed in early 2019, they take sonic cues from old-school math rock and post-hardcore as well as a healthy dose of post-rock, drone, jazz and whatever music they might be listening to that day.

They have spent the last five years dialing in a sound that is both a reflection of this wide array of music, while also being entirely their own. The music is dense, technical and dynamic, relying on Gage Walker’s dexterous basslines, Ezra Chong’s noisy, effects-laden guitar and occasional shrieks, and Noah Mortola’s relentless drumming to get their point across.

The band has released both an EP and LP and have been hard at work preparing their sophomore full-length record that is slated to be released in the summer of 2024.
