"Every once in a while a band comes along and truly blows your mind"
-Uncle Nasty 107X Denver
In The Variant winning 107X's Local Band Project
In The Variant is a rock/funk/metal band based in Denver Colorado. The band was started in 2014 by current/original members Jason Deliganis (Drums and percussion), Josh Goldstein (Guitars), Josh Somers (Bass and Analog Synth) and former vocalist Jeremy Clayton.
The band honed their sound and cut their teeth all over Colorado and beyond for a few years. Their sound represents influences from bands like Primus, Tool, Mr. Bungle and Anthrax with tastes of modern hip hop rhythms and industrial metal. ITV has been playing shows since 2014 with notable performances at the SXSW music festival in 2016 and at The Denver Underground Music Showcase in 2022. Since the pandemic lockdown in early 2020 they have been working on new material and expanding their soundscape.
In 2022 ITV was joined by vocalist Monica Rivas, an accomplished musician and front person known throughout the Denver music scene. They are currently working on new music set to be recorded and released in early 2023.
