Everywhere Else: A vague sense of want, of escape, or of resignation. Reconciling the limitations of your surroundings with the endlessness of earthly potential. Kindling has made their home in this space: between the dirt and the stars, conscious of the weight of life's anchors, trying to outpace and shed them. Building on the foundation of 2015's Galaxies EP, the band has zoomed out on the map to present a fuller view of their topography: the succinct punk-influenced noise-pop of Galaxies refocused into what is at turns scorchingly anthemic and quietly understated fuzzed-out bliss on Everywhere Else. The band - led by Stephen Pierce and Gretchen Williams - spent a week at Sonelab in rural Easthampton, MA with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Speedy Ortiz, Sonic Youth, etc.), resulting in a dynamically layered monolith of towering guitar noise & wistfully hazy vocals, balancing deafening heaviness with a lightness and beauty; a pop sensibility rarely found when the volume and attack ends up this far in the red.

From the opening barrage of Coma through the droning guitar outro of Became, Everywhere Else is a geography of peaks and valleys, demonstrating dramatic growth in the short months between it & the Galaxies EP. With their most clearly defined and ambitious set of songs to date, Kindling has taken a leap forward, exploring far beyond the outer reaches of the blueprints laid out thus far, at once cloaked in shadow and drenched in sunlight, celestial but distinctly of this world.

"There’s nothing soothing about the music of the Massachusetts shoegaze band Kindling. Kindling don’t use their waves of guitar effects to beautify their songs; instead, they drag them through mud. There’s a lot of fuzz on this band’s guitars, and it’s always punishing, never uplifting. Still, Kindling bring some seriously pretty melodies and vocal harmonies in with all that ugliness." —STEREOGUM

"KINDLING began in early 2014 in a spare room of an Easthampton, MA house when Stephen Pierce asked Gretchen Williams to contribute to a throwaway fuzz pop song that he had written and recorded over the preceding hour. The next day, they did the same thing, and then again the day after that. After about a week and a half, they had completed the "Spare Room" demo and set to work on a debut 7". Instead of spontaneous compositions, though, the duo took their time and worked considerably harder on the four songs that comprise the "Spike & Wave" EP. Inspired by the kindness shown by the people who managed to hear the 7", a full band was assembled, bringing in drummer Andy Skelly - who has played with Stephen in DIY punk mainstays AMPERE for over a decade - and bassist Andrew Farr. Having blossomed from their modest indiepop beginnings, KINDLING as a full band embodies equal parts delicate beauty and crushing heaviness, awash in a sea of fuzz, reverb, and volume."
