Formed in 2016 as Sights & Sages, this alt-experimental rock band was founded by one-time La Jolla High School water polo team member Christian Clark (Neveready, Pumphouse), Jay Sanchioli (Trunks, Neveready), and Chaz Lamden. Clark also played sax in La Jolla High’s jazz band and attended UC Berkeley. Sights & Sages released their Doubleplus EP in summer 2017, preceded by singles for "Give" and "Aghori," shortly after Clark's band Pumphouse released their Too Broke for Fun EP.
Love Glow was founded in 2016 by Christian Clark (Pumphouse, Neveready, Sights & Sages), Jay Sanchioli (Trunks, Neveready, Sights and Sages), and Declan Halloran (Trunks, Neveready, Pumphouse, Hand of Gavrilo), alongside frontwoman Caroline Corn. Their debut EP Honey was released in 2017.
By 2019, Sights & Sages had expanded to a five-piece with two new keyboardists (Ida Naughton and Sebastian Rizo) and changed its name to Ten Bulls. An album was released near the end of the year, The Physician's Magician, debuting November 30 at Soda Bar.
