Unalaska Short Info

A few years ago, leads Edo Van Breemen (also plays in Brasstronaut) and Zachary Gray (also plays in The Zolas) got a gig playing members of a fictional band in the cult vampire thriller hit Afflicted. Given the constraints of the film’s indie budget, there wasn’t enough money to rent a sound-stage and hire actors for their concert scenes, so the producers worked some black magic and booked the band to play some legit gigs on their made-up European tour, shooting the scenes guerrilla-style with real crowds, the music improvised on the spot.

While playing one of these weirdly verité shows in a Parisian nightclub, Gray and Van Breemen realized that they might be on to something. So when they returned to their respective home bases in Brooklyn and Vancouver, they began to piece together their self-titled debut EP, a cross-continental correspondence that mixes the two’s seemingly disparate styles into a spooky, loopy, chorused-out post-cinematic groove.

In August 2015 the band released their first song, which has since gotten over 55.000 plays on Spotify and SoundCloud. In October the debut EP followed. The band has gotten reviews and mentions on Stereogum, Clash, Wonderland Magazine, Noisey, i-D, Konbini and many more. Currently the band is planning their first European tour.
