The Northern Key (self titled) LP is out today and availabe on iTunes, Amazon and through the Tricycle Records store. Singer / songwriter Andrew Galluccio is hardly a new member of Tricycle Records; as the bass player for The Red Verse, he has been part of the Tricycle family for years. We are excited to now release this collection of his songs, reminiscent of Mark Kozelek and Elliott Smith that truly capture the spirit of indie folk.
As The Northern Key, Andrew Galluccio unlocks a familiar world of folk music for the next generation of listeners. Galluccio’s gentle guitar and haunting harmonies melt pretension with pure expression; his tender voice thawing even the coolest cynic. This world is our companion, our comfort, and the perfect complement to any reality.
‘The Northern Key’ came alive at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco with Chris Chu (The Morning Benders) recording and mixing, and local musician Jen Grady contributing vocals and cello — in just 24 hours. Such spontaneity allowed years of dreaming to crystallize into a well-crafted — but not overworked — work of art.
