, who wrote, "if you haven't heard of Gooseberry before, this EP is most certainly the perfect introduction." A bombastic, ambitious four track EP, Broken Dance
sees Gooseberry thrive at what they do best: melding genres in a dynamic, thrilling fashion to create a sound that is not only unique to them, but to every song within the record. A melange of indie rock, blues, and jazz, Gooseberry prove themselves to be a band at their peak sonic creativity and cohesion.
From rolling, mesmerizing tracks like "Sleep" to melancholic slow burners like "Broken Dance," Gooseberry's sound is constantly shifting and fresh, as they effortlessly move through themes, sounds, and textures. Gooseberry recorded their debut EP at their own studio and partly at Red Panda Recordings. The mixes were then brought to life by Grammy award-winner James Meslin (Dream Theater) and mastered by Colatura’s Jennica Best.
New on the block, Gooseberry has already begun developing a devoted following in and around New York City, headlining the full gamut of venues from Mercury Lounge to Our Wicked Lady, quickly staking their claim in the ever-lively Brooklyn music scene. Fans know they'll be kept on their toes, as the band moves in and out of genres and styles, always keeping the crowd engaged. The band has supported major touring acts like BabyJake, Grady Spencer & The Work, Maybird, and more.
