With a tendency towards dramatic shifts and an approach rooted in restlessness, Eugene, Oregon’s Gazelle(s) brand of instrumental post-rock is one without boundaries. The band formed as a three-piece in 2015, adding violinist Michelle Whitlock to round out their sound in 2016. Gazelle(s) is a proud member of the NW Post Rock Collective and tour regularly around the pacific northwest, playing with many other notable bands including Holy Fawn, Wander, Blackwater Holylight, Coastlands, Bent Knee and Slow Crush. Gazelle(s) influences vary widely but include Russian Circles, Mogwai, Jagga Jazzist, Three Trapped Tigers, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Sigur Ros and Do Make Say Think. In Gazelle(s) newest release, ‘True Meridian,’ guitar and violin interweave seamlessly over the driving bass and drums, moving from textures of heaviness and doom to western themed symphonic melodies. The band is already writing new material and hoping to tour when it is safe to do so and venues across the US reopen.
