Originally formed by childhood friends, David Mills and Aaron Johnson,
Portland-based Adventure Galley has been on the rise since 2009, playing to
crowds of dancing people of all ages across the West Coast. Utilizing an arsenal
of synthesizers and drum samples, a love of interesting guitar tones, and the high
energy of its live performance, Adventure Galley creates highly original music
with unique, powerful vocals and unforgettable melodies.
On January 1st 2012, Adventure Galley premiered the first three tracks
from its upcoming full-length debut album, exclusively available for online
streaming on the high-traffic music blog, EARMILK. The album, titled “Anywhere
That’s Wild”, a follow-up to 2010’s The Right Place To Be EP, was produced and
mixed by acclaimed producer Dave Trumfio whose previous work has included
albums by Built to Spill, Ok Go, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Wilco & Billy
Brag. A new recording of the song "Addict," which was originally featured on the
band's 2010 EP and the winner out of 17,000 entrants in a music competition
hosted by myspace.com is included among the newly released tracks.
Primarily recorded last spring in Los Angeles, at Kingsize Soundlabs
(used by artists such as Islands, Passion Pit, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Anywhere
That’s Wild” features a combination of heavy electronic production and traditional
rock recording techniques, which results in a sound that is equal parts dance club
beat-centric and punk show energetic. Through the process of carefully crafting a
debut album, Adventure Galley has created a set of recordings that are sonically
dynamic and unique in soundscape, yet remain vocally driven and pop-sensible.
Within three days of their New Years Day release, the tracks Addict
and Weekend Lovers held the 6th and 9th spots on The Hype Machine’s
(http://www.hypem.com) most popular songs list, and the word is spreading. With the
EARMILK write up, a stark rise in blog attention, and a number of shows in the
works around the North West and beyond in 2012, Adventure Galley continues to
gain hype in their home state and around the web.
