Affiliating noise rock inspirations and conceptual melodies, Subset's compositions promote new views for the alternative pop/rock music fields. Inspired by bands like Sonic Youth, the Texas-born trio explores its own methods within experimental rock marks. Assembling in 1999, Subset combined the efforts of Lindsey Simon (vocals, guitar, bass) and Nathan Fish (vocals, guitar, bass). Joel Fish, Nathan's brother, was the next addition to the lineup, at the time assuring the trio's keyboard section. Following a number of rehearsals, the Texans delivered their first single, Circuitis, receiving considerable praise. Joining the band shortly afterward, Tom Hudson finally filled in the crew's drum section, months before Joel parted ways with the band, therefore fixing the set as a three-piece. Still, Subset's shows continued to gain exciting reviews from the media, and an always rising fan base. Featured on a number of local compilation discs, the band entered the studio in late 1999 to record their first album. Overpass hit the record stores in 2000 as the trio's debut full-length on the Post-Parlo Records label.
