Artist bio

CONTACT is Sarah Graziani, Matt Rhoades, Aaron Shelton and Jon Cabral. The band formed in Boston in 2014, when they began work on the songs that would become their debut LP, Sleepwalk Into The Dark. Co-written by Graziani and Rhoades, the songs are reflections on the struggles of choosing to be an artist. This album means a lot to Matt and I because it was a big departure for us when we began the writing process. We had experienced success with other music projects, but felt like we lost touch with who we really were as artists. Where in the past we had been writing this super-structured, very thought-out poppy music, we kind of had to re-learn to follow our instincts and to write from the heart. But its been a very rewarding journey and were so glad to have rediscovered our old selves again, says Graziani. The ten-song album features Grazianis unique vocal rasp dreamily floating over Rhoades intricate electronic soundscapes. Part new-wave, part shoegaze, Sleepwalk Into The Dark is set for a September release via Doghouse Records, with U.S. touring to follow.
