EndAnd

EndAnd is a noisy punk/alternative trio from Brooklyn, New York. The band embrace both feedback and pop sensibility and have been likened to artists such as Cloud Nothings, Helmet, and Guided by Voices. Starting in early 2011, Daniel Fern and Mike Morales played for months as a rock duo (à la The White Stripes and Hella). Dan's writing style mixed powerful, gut-wrenching vocals with solid guitar work. Dan had previously played the guitar, drums and bass on his early demos; in live performance he looped parts to overdub, while Mike held the groove.

EndAnd is a noisy punk/alternative trio from Brooklyn, New York. The band embrace both feedback and pop sensibility and have been likened to artists such as Cloud Nothings, Helmet, and Guided by Voices. Starting in early 2011, Daniel Fern and Mike Morales played for months as a rock duo (à la The White Stripes and Hella). Dan's writing style mixed powerful, gut-wrenching vocals with solid guitar work. Dan had previously played the guitar, drums and bass on his early demos; in live performance he looped parts to overdub, while Mike held the groove.

As the duo gained steam, so, too, so did the buzz surrounding the band, garnering increasing attention and respect at their rehearsal space, and home away from home, King Killer Studios (Gowanus, Brooklyn). After a show at Williamsburg’s Public Assembly, where they serendipitously shared the stage with fellow KK band Capita Clip, Dan and Mike, sparked by the low end emanating from Capita's sound, asked bassist Bill Fitzgerald if he'd sit in at their next practice. Fitzgerald gladly obliged.

Bill jumped on board during this first rehearsal, bringing the vision of a power trio into fruition and forming EndAnd. With impressive vocal capabilities and spine-bending bass lines, Bill turned the project into a band when Adventures of Fi in Space was performed at the album’s release show later that week.

Everyone, past and present, from the King Killer community is represented here: Ernest D'Amaso and Willie Chen of Generator Ohm; Dan Kramer of The Stink; and Robert Allan of We Are Augustines are among the many that contributed to Adventures. The album, comprised of Adventures of Hi Fi and Adventures of Lo Fi in Space, two EP's consisting of pristine studio recordings and a collection of DIY recordings, respectively, rang in 2012 with an amazing start. Since it's release, the band have been going from strength to strength recommended by tastemaker websites such as Large Hearted Boy and Those Who Dig. « hide
