Embraced far and wide in the aughts, Voxtrot's first EPs garnered attention from music blogs as well as major publications such as Pitchfork, Spin and Rolling Stone. As expeditiously as the band was built up, they were pulled apart, calling it quits in 2010 shortly after their Playlouder/Beggars debut LP, Voxtrot.

While the members went on with their individual lives, Voxtrot’s legacy grew. A new legion of fans discovered their music posthumously.

And then, a new chapter... “I had a dream where we were onstage and it was really positive,” remembers frontman Ramesh Srivastava. “There was such a strong and palpable feeling of love in my heart that when I woke up, it was still with me. I switched on my phone and started looking at things tagged with “Voxtrot” on social media – teenagers covering our songs, people with Voxtrot tattoos – and just went down this internet rabbit hole that made me realize how much love there still is for the band. For the first time since we broke up, it seemed very, very obvious that we should do this.”

With that, Voxtrot reunited. A largely sold-out US tour and a steady stream of singles, "Another Fire", "New World Romance" and "My Peace" followed.
