-Tremor Low comes from fucking Oakland, California.
They sound like synthesizers, drum machines, delay and distortion pedals in exactly that order.
They also sound like Robert Smith making music in the Noughties, but they’re trying to get away from that.
Tremor Low shot to mega-almost-stardom during the summer of 2013, at which point they were playing venues like Great American Music Hall, Bottom of the Hill, and Popscene (SF). During this time Tremor Low did a stint as the resident band at the Beautiful Buzzz SXSW showcase and their 2-year old video was utterly destroying the competition for 2nd or 3rd place in various film festivals. At home, they were sharing the stage with The Trims, Parallels, and Moving Units. In the same week that they were included in the first round of CMJ bands, the c-list-celebrity-bullet-train ran off the rails as they decided to lose a member, cancel all shows and put the band on indefinite hiatus. Fabian and Don went on to experiment with writing and playing a dancier version of themselves under a different name, and after a long period decided that doing the new material under the name Tremor Low was a better decision.
After literally 20+ auditions, the band discovered Ariel Utz Wirnsberger, a Chilean national living in the Bay Area with no practical band experience, but he was a fucking bad-ass synthesizer wizard. While Ariel’s english improved, and Don continued to practice his tortured Spanish on his cringing bandmates, they finessed their sound and show to be the very best version of Tremor Low that the world has ever seen.
