The Gradients stream new single "Shelf" + tour the east coast + play The Studio on 08.15

As The Gradients are gearing up for their debut LP, they've been pumping out singles which have tickled our fancies.  Their latest release is "Shelf", another indicator of the band's continued development.  One of the interesting things about this band is how accurately they depict the anxieties of an age not just lyrically, but musically.  The attention deficit riffs and melodies come from multiple directions at once, and provide consistently compelling and unexpected structures. They sing about an age and a situation where nothing is certain, and often times the only place to look for support, recognition, and reassurance is in others around you.  "Am I the only one?" is the line that rings out from this track, and it's a question that everyone is oh so familiar with. East coasters will have the chance to see The Gradients live as they tour those lands next week (dates here). Last date in NYC at the Studio on 08.15 - Jake Saunders
