Gross Relations is a Brooklyn-based fivesome who play lo-fi pop songs that are highly catchy and short on saccharine. With plenty of fuzz and lackadaisically-delivered lyrics reeled in by insistent, irresistible riffs, GR have a certain swagger that's earning them frequent gigs and adulation. You'll find moody rockers with as many upbeat notes as pent-up emotions followed by anthems for the romantically resigned, despondent dude in all of us. Through all the subtleties and polish of their tracks, they never lose the sound of intoxicated friends trying to find their space-time continuum. Think Beat Happening meets Brooklyn meets bad ass bros. Look out for more Relations buzz—it's infectious.

'Largely influenced by the swing-jazz era of the 1930's, BC/NC's sound is wildly eclectic. The band utilizes all kinds of crazy instruments including the saxophone, a pair of flutes, the euphonium (similar to a tuba), a tambourine, and even some kazoos! But it is Carrie Anne's maniacal and operatic voice that is perhaps the most captivating instrument at work here, recalling the raw intensity of the legendary Diamanda Galás.' - BushwickBK.com (bushwickbk.com/2008/07/08/bad-creditno-credit-wreck-room-welcomes-all)
