Genders is a fuzzed-out, dream pop band from Portland, OR. Their most recent release, an EP entitled Phone Home, showcases a darker, moodier side of the band than that found on their debut LP, Get Lost. Written and arranged after a rather turbulent time in their lives (your late twenties can be ROUGH), even the cheerful sounding single, 'Life Is But A Dream' harbors sinister intentions. Since the release of 'Phone Home' the three friends known collectively as Genders --Maggie Morris (guitar/vocals) Stephen Leisy (guitar/vocals) and Katherine Paul (Drums/vocals)--have completed a west coast tour supporting experimental wizards The Helio Sequence, played several dates with indie rock legends/face melters Built To Spill, headlined their own west coast tour, and currently, are hard at work writing their as-of-yet untitled sophomore LP.
"After nearly a decade of performing as Helvetia, Albertini has solidified a lineup that includes Duster’s Dove Amber and Built to Spill’s Jim Roth, among others. Together, the group recorded the follow-up to 2012’s melodic and chaotic Nothing in Rambling, Dromomania... It’s a magnificent blend of haunting and stirring..." - Consequence Of Sound
