Mass Gothic is a New York City-based indie rock band led by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Noel Heroux, formerly of Hooray for Earth
, which disbanded in 2014.
snatched up the new project in 2015, which made its live debut at a Sub Pop
CMJ showcase headlined by Protomartyr
that October. The fuzzy, despondent first single "Nice Night" appeared soon after. With Heroux describing the project as a fresh start, he wrote and recorded the eponymous debut LP alone at home. Pinballing between lo-fi, synth pop, and sweeping, guitar-based wistfulness, Mass Gothic arrived in February 2016. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
