The Gradients kick off US tour with The Cradle on 07.03 at Palisades

The Gradients kick off US tour with The Cradle on 07.03 at Palisades

With their debut, self titled LP, The Gradients have already forged a very strong sonic identity, one which can't be easily labeled. The record takes us back to the days when XTC was still little more than a punk band (1979 circa), but already displayed all the talent in place to become what it became: one of the edgiest pop bands of all times. Like the British duo, The Gradients feature dual vocals (bassist Charlie DY and guitarist Luca Balser) with contrasting tones, and a songwriting attitude that privileges clever song developments, melodies and instrumental parts over familiar ones. Their album's incredible consistency is the most promising asset here, which bodes well for their future; whatever alchemy they have in place right now should be nurtured and cherished. The band will be kicking off a US tour at Palisades on July 3rd - dates here. They will be joined by Brooklyn freak folk band The Cradle - another interesting group we'll be blogging about soon.
