Like a gentle bedside whisper to a lover in the dark, rogov's tender vocals evoke a paradox of poetic melancholy. The eloquent lyricism creates vivid imagery of a fleeting heart broadcasting a hopeful plea into the dark abyss. The string work dances elegantly along the track accompanied by a beautiful cello performance from Gregory's former Priestbird bandmate Danny Bensi (who recently co-composed the soundtrack for the film Boy Erased).
Gregory's previous projects include Piana, Megapuss (w/ Devendra Banhart), Priestbird, & Tarantula AD. He is a long-time drummer and collaborator with Devendra Banhart, and has worked with a number of other artists including: Rodrigo Amarante, Niia, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Natalia LaFourcade, CocoRosie, Sons of the Sea (Brandon Boyd), and Zavalaz (members of Mars Volta), and Adam Green among others.
