Creative melodies evocative of at times kent, at others Bjork, are delivered with the grand musical scope of The Verve, Radiohead and Mew. The Myriad's first full length record, "You Can't Trust a Ladder" was featured as a Staff Favorite on iTunes (alongside the White Stripes and the Foo Fighters) when it was released in June 2005.
