A Lull possesses the energy and rhythm to create powerful musical landscapes of pounding drums, morphing guitars, studio trickery, and pensive vocals, yet the band never loses its melodic center amid the cacophony. With percussion strongly taking the forefront and elements of shoegaze, psychedelia and traditional indie-rock underlying metaphoric lyrics, A Lull’s songs are a carefully orchestrated demonstration in the beauty of excess.
A Lull’s history began with an ending. After the split of Nigel Dennis and Todd Miller’s former band, the pair realized their desire to not only continue playing music, but to ultimately start anew with a fresh sound. After luring Mike Brown back home from Boston, they began dedicating themselves to a distinctive brand of sound-collage and songwriting. Soon Ashwin Deepankar and Aaron Vincel added their musical voices to the mix and the line-up was complete. Their 2009 EP, Ice Cream Bones was the first display of their quasi-folk, electronic leanings. With each member of the band being fascinated by drums and percussion, A Lull's sound has since solidified as something impossible to characterize.
