Biography

Belying the grim name, Andy Craig formed The Gloomies in a sun-bleached surf town in Southern California. Taking cues from Southern California’s surf scene, The Gloomies are influenced by the sounds of Unknown Mortal OrchestraAriel Pink, and Lana Del Rey.

The Gloomies broke onto the music scene in 2015 with their single “LSD”. This strange paradox, mixing gritty realism and yearning optimism, is what caught listeners ears with the single “LSD”. The surfy track was only posted on Soundcloud for friends to hear, but ended up on countless music blogs and eventually landed them “Buzz Band of the Week” in NME.

After receiving praise from NoiseyDIYKCRW, and many others over the last few years, combined with months of touring, The Gloomies released their Blackout EP in 2016. This was followed by the 2017 single “Space” in collaboration with Cults singer Madeline Follin. In 2018, they returned to New York to complete work on the debut LP Romance.  They have spent the last year in New York recording new music, creating a hypnotic collection of songs that showcase their original vision.
