Hailing from Lafayette, Colorado, Gauntlet Hair may be the task of Andy R. and Craig Wonderful, who began producing music together if they had been 15. The pair’s moving, epic avant pop triggered a stir this year 2010 also before they released their initial single, drawing advantageous evaluations to Yeasayer, Pet Collective, Surfer Bloodstream, and Interest Pit. That springtime, they performed the MtyMx celebration in Mexico within a stop of rings curated by Denver place Rhinocerpolis. Among their tracks, “I USED TO BE Considering…,” was highlighted on the mixtape by regional producer Pictureplane, raising the buzz about Gauntlet Locks on indie rock and roll blogs. One particular blog page, Gorilla vs. Keep, released the band’s debut 7″, I USED TO BE Thinking…/Our Surroundings, on its Forest Family members imprint as a restricted model of 500 copies in summertime 2010. After other brief releases, like the Mexican Summertime select, Don’t/Heave, Gauntlet Locks released their self-titled debut record on Deceased Oceans in Oct 2011. The sophomore record Stills premiered in 2013, and discovered the duo sketching from ’80s goth and substitute rock influences.
