Innerds was founded by Brandon Relf and Bobby Bray. By 2016, with the addition of Chad Deal on bass, the band had changed its name to INUS (The Institute for Navigating the Universal Self), describing their sound as "pre-postapocalyptic, post-honky-tonk-prog-skronk, space-tropicalia, math-lounge."
Their album Western Spaghettification, is a play on words intertwining Stephen Hawking’s concept of spaghettification (what theoretically happens when you cross the event horizon of a black hole) and Spaghetti Westerns, which were filmed in Italy, with Italians portraying Mexicans, to save money.
