The Narrative will be supporting Eisley on their upcoming Spring national tour. They will also be embarking on Vans Warped Tour from 7/19 to 8/14.
The New York based indie pop rock group is a perfect example of how sometimes things just seem to fall into place. Jesse Gabriel (guitar/vocals) met Suzie Zeldin (keyboard/vocals) for a slice of mediocre New York pizza after she responded to his 3 page long Craigslist ad. They soon learned that not only did they go to high school together, they also shared identical musical interests.
The two spent much of the next year heading from their nine-to-fives to Suzie’s cramped Upper East Side apartment to craft their first tunes. When it came time to record an album, Gabriel and Zeldin were introduced to Charles Seich (drums) by producer Bryan Russell. Soon enough, their first EP Just Say Yes was released and met with great success, receiving rave reviews from critics such as Flavorpill, The Deli Magazine, Idolator, Absolute Punk and more.
The Narrative’s self-titled album is sure to be a fan favorite. Zeldin’s hauntingly beautiful vocals blend perfectly with Gabriel’s resonating calm delivery reminiscent of Straylight Run and The Hush Sound. The musical arrangements fit just as flawlessly with piano and guitar fusing into wonderfully orchestrated pieces.
Since the success of their 2008 EP, The Narrative have been touring the country and gaining a dedicated following. They began writing and recording their first full length in 2009 and are ready to impact today’s music scene with a genuine record that strikes a balance between profound songwriting and catchy melodies.
