Chicago based Gaberdine is an indie-rock band that colors melodic, bittersweet songs with lush textural sounds. The conception of Mark Federighi, Gaberdine creates artful music with subtle hooks and intriguing instrumentation. Their debut EP and full-length album thin wire transport earned critical acclaim: 'A desolate gem' -Chicago Reader 'Federighi is a soulful singer-songwriter whose dark embracing lyrics perfectly match his inspired vocals' -Chicago Sun Times 'A chamber-pop group that rises above preciousness' -The Onion "strong, endless stream of unpretentious darkness without stumbling over itself" - New City Chicago In when we land, Gaberdine has produced it's most mature, cohesive, and personal album to date. More than ever, leader Mark Federighi draws on lived experience in his songwriting. As a result, the nine song album encapsulates the emotions and difficulties inherent to interpersonal relationships and intrapersonal struggles. Lyrically and musically these cathartic songs metaphorically reflect the scope of the subject matter... from sorrowful to hopeful. The arrangements span from extremely sparse moments of the solitary voice and guitar to swelling, enveloping layers of guitars, bass, percussion, keys, cello, horns, and various other instruments and experimental sounds.
