A Deli Premiere: Gondola releases debut EP + plays Muchmore tonight (04.11)

A Deli Premiere: Gondola releases debut EP + plays Muchmore tonight (04.11)

Gondola is an ambiguous name for an indie band - if on one hand it conjures up images of mainstream tourism in Venice (yours truly knows something about that, since he lived there for 8 years), on the other it's also true that those darn little boats rock like no other. Brooklyn band Gondola doesn't rock particularly hard though, if not occasionally. Their tunes are propelled by strummed acoustic guitars, but they are not really folky. They are indie pop tunes featuring an element of blue thoughtfulness that falls somewhere in the middle between The Shins' early lo-fi gems, Belle and Sebastian's suggestive storytelling and the Beta Band's quirky pop experiments. Charming. We are premiering the single "We Are the Map" - streaming below - from their debut EP. The band will celebrate its release tonight (04.11) with a show at Brooklyn's Muchmore with Vensaire, Tica Douglas, and Bill Bartholomew.
