Drawing on the classic rock of the '70s, the synth-driven dreamscapes of the '80s, and the wall-of-sound stadium rock of the 2000s, The Lower Aetna makes music for tailgating the end of the empire.

The debut record - now streaming on all major platforms.
Waiting for God to Turn on the Lights is a startlingly vivid investigation of families and radicalization in the internet age.
A concept album characterized rotating narrator points of view, Waiting for God to Turn on the Lights tells the story of a fictional American family whose mother absconds reality in favor of the dopamine-driven temptations of a digital fantasy world—namely, the deranged Qanon conspiracy theory.
As their mother descends further and further down the rabbit hole, the songs, which are written from different fictional family members' perspectives, trace the psychological and emotional toll her journey exacts from those who love her most.
A study of families, aging, and the ways the internet warps our sense of what is and is not real, Waiting for God to Turn on the Lights is now streaming on all major platforms.
