Their songs capture themes ranging from love and loss to drug abuse to mental illness, manifested through extensive guitar loops and hypnotic lyrics, ultimately sewn together with Sean's simple, yet drivey rhythm sections.
In a live setting, Puerto brings an energy that is more that the sum of its parts. Whether playing to a sell out crowd or an empty dive bar, it's safe to say Zach will be barefoot, Sean will be on the ride, and both will be thoroughly enjoying themselves.
