Huffington Post –
“Innovative jams for the Internet age: Crater is the next band you need to know.”

The Stranger –
“If Crater aren’t significantly bigger by next year, I’ll slowly shake my head in disbelief.”

Gorilla vs. Bear –
“(Crater) make big, romantically ominous (or maybe ominously romantic), industrial-leaning electro-pop.”

Crater is a Seattle based electronic industrial pop duo consisting of Ceci Gomez and Kessiah Gordon. Since its 2013 inception, the group has released a slew of singles via Mermaid Avenue/Mom+Pop and will put out their debut full length Talk to Me so I Can Fall Asleep on Help Yourself Records in early 2015. Within the past year they have toured nationally with the likes of Canadian goth pop artist TR/ST and glitter pop band MS MR.

 

Talk to Me so I Can Fall Asleep is a bedroom composition that emerged during the rainy season in Seattle. The album was primarily sculpted out of a massive collection of “internet treasures” including arcane samples, torrents, and GIFS all crammed into a folder aptly named “Black Hole” on Ceci’s desktop screen. Out of this chaos surfaced a pop record giving way to entropy; often times brooding dance tracks that tend to stutter into hysteria, textured playfully with pop instincts and overdriven guitar riffs.
