Originally from Richmond, VA, and now based in Brooklyn, this band exhibits a talent and grace well beyond their years. After the release of two stellar EP's, Gregor Samsa delivered their much anticipated debut full length55:12, an eight song journey submerged in dreamy, multi-layered atmospherics. The band blurs the lines of ambient and indie, from heavy and dark one moment to hushed and serene the next, all while angelic guy/girl vocals drift overhead.
The album was tracked at the Recorditorium in Richmond , engineered by Jason Laferrera and produced by Gregor Samsa. The mix was done by Brian Paulson (Slint, Wilco, Beck).
