“Desert Noises make music for shouting into canyons, jumping into rivers, and getting married to the wide-open road,” says the bio for Kyle Henderson, Tyler Osmond, Patrick Boyer and Brennan Allen, aka Utah Valley, UT’s Desert Noises.

If your idea of a desert noise includes a coyote, or the meep-meep of the cartoon roadrunner, or maybe America’s “Horse with No Name,” this band would like to add a few more sonic offerings to that list. Their brand of indie rock isn’t attempting to reinvent the driving percussion, barely-reigned-in guitars or vocals delivered with both nonchalance and swagger that sum up the genre. But there is a certain breathless anticipation held captive in each of Desert Noises’ rocked-out notes.

Listen to Desert Noises’ new EP, I Won’t See You. The title track for that album premiered on MTV Hive in October. Watch the band perform that song at Audiotree Live:

See them live, for yourself, at Jack of the Wood on Sunday, Dec. 9. Not In The Face also performs. 10 p.m., $5.
