To put it simply, The Gloomies were created out of bits of dust…an infamous chthonian hellhole that should have been wiped of the map far before it reached the listeners ear. This New York City duo understand the importance of feeling alive amongst the darkness of broken and vivid realities that encompass the dualities of human interaction. Fairing from Southern California, Andy Craig and The Gloomies create a meteoric sound that instills both the hypnotic vibe of Southern California beach days and the grungy jazz that infiltrate the streets of New York City. The ominous, yet, catchy melodies provide a moody atmosphere for any listener. Their popularity began to rise in the end of 2015 with the single, “LSD”, and their release of the EP “Blackout” in 2016. Further, their growth continued with the release of their latest single “Space” featuring Madeline Follin of Cults. Frontman Andy Craig and drummer Chris Trombley began their music career together when they met in 2013 and played in the band SACCO. They have since created songs that exhibit a layer of fantastical and hypnotic themes.
