LA band Cre·scen·do – Gregory Cole (vocals/guitar), Jade Kim (bass), Jesse Roberts (synths) – unveil their debut tracks ‘Gatsby’ and ‘Jacqueline’s Apartment’.
Two perfect early summer flares of dream pop, produced by John Glenn Kunkel of fellow LA band, The New Division and taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Lost Thoughts’ (out soon).
On ‘Gatsby’, front man Gregory Cole says: “I was writing the song in my bedroom and the instrumental spoke to me. It asked me to deliver lyrics with a light at the end of the tunnel. After a few takes I developed the melody, and the name “Gatsby” was the first thing that popped out for it , along with the forgiving and acknowledging lyrics.
I haven’t even seen the movie nor remember the book, as far as I felt then and now the name could be male or female. I hoped like all the songs, this track could be therapeutic to the people.”
