Incan Abraham was founded in a garage in Rhinebeck, New York, in June 2009. In the fall of that year, the band relocated to Los Angeles, the hometown of three of its members, and Teddy, the only New Yorker, moved out West for the band. Since then, the band has released three EPs, Adult World (2010) and SUNSCREEN (2011), and Ancient Vacation (2011), and maintained a constant stream of live shows in Southern California, as well as more far-flung appearances at CMJ (2010, 2011), San Francisco’s Noise Pop Festival (2011, 2012), and SXSW 2011.
With a sound at once welcoming and exotic, Incan Abraham has received praise from NPR, TIME Magazine, and a number of respected local, national and foreign blogs. Earlier this year, the band launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new series of recordings. The fruit of that effort, a new short-form album titled Ancient Vacation, was released in October 2011. On the strength of this release, Incan Abraham has been able to take its sound to its largest stages to date, including the ASCAP showcase at CMJ 2011, an appearance at the Wiltern with Beady Eye in December, and a month-long residency at Los Angeles' Bootleg Theater in February 2012.
