GRAVITY TREE / About
"Punches a hole through the more established forms of Prog and creates their own sound." (USAProgMusic)
"...one of the more interesting progressive bands around" (Expose mag) Gravity Tree is an experimental, progressive rock group hailing from California's San Francisco Bay Area. What Gravity Tree plays is sometimes referred to as Art Rock, Prog Rock, Avant-Prog, Math Rock, Fusion - or any number of other titles - although no one has mistaken this brand of noise for hip-hop or country...yet. Gravity Tree has influences from all over the musical map: rock bands of the '60's and '70's, film soundtrack composers, performance artists, game music (which keyboardist/drummer Alan also writes), and the "classics". Rock influences range from King Crimson to Gentle Giant, from Fred Frith to Al Di Meola, from Laurie Anderson to Frank Zappa. It's a mix of decidedly guitar focused modern experimentation with old school prog rock and vintage synthesizer foundations. The group plays what sounds right their own ears; call it what you like.
Those aren't drum loops. That's not a sample riff. And Gravity Tree isn't playing anything that can be easily categorized by today's record industry. This ain't pop. Listen if you dare.
