The Sanctuaries were formed this year 2010 when friends singer/guitarist David Stern and drummer Brian Indig solidified a couple of upbeat pop tunes after playing collectively in a variety of combinations for quite some time at Skidmore University. Centered out of Manhattan but with origins in NY condition, the group enlisted Rochester-area musician Alex Northrup on body organ plus a revolving solid of bass players. A self-released 7″ designated the band’s debut soon thereafter. In 2011 the music group journeyed to Nashville to record its 1st full-length record with Yo La Tengo maker Roger Moutenot. Soon after the classes, Northrup remaining the music group, forcing it right into a short condition of hiatus. NY jazz improviser Ross Edwards required over on body organ in early 2012, and in the springtime of that season the band released the Annette LP on NY label Mecca Lecca Documenting Company.
