Indie Folk Rock "dancing the line between the jangly and the sonic, the warm and the edgy, the lush and the angular," ethereal melodies & thought-provoking lyrics; "draws the listener effortlessly into a pleasant commiseration with his melancholia.
Daydreaming is dangerous, but the images that fuel the compelling, but dream-like urgency of the songs of Gravity Engine, are a product of that elusive state between waking and sleeping. “Some of the best lyrics come to me at that moment right before I lose consciousness,” says Brad Wilcox, who is Gravity Engine. “Unfortunately, I don’t always revive long enough to write them down.” Fortunately for the listener, many of those lines were captured before sleep pulled him under. The music may be loosely called indie folk rock, but embodies much more. Influenced by the likes of the Pixies, The Replacements, Grant Lee Phillips, Tom Waits, Jeff Buckley and Blur, the style is diverse, but well contained within the gravitational pull of Wilcox’s enthralling voice and lyrics.
