It seems hard to believe, but as Gospel Gossip release their new, three-song 7-inch, "Atlantic Blue," Saturday, it will be the first bona-fide recording they've put out in nearly three full years. With the exception of an online-only single that was released last fall, the dreamy, reverb-soaked trio haven't released any new music since the promising Drift
EP -- released all the way back in November, 2009.
But it's not for a lack of trying. Even as band members Sarah Nienaber and Ollie Moltaji stayed busy with other projects, in the form of Is/Is and Pony Trash, Gospel Gossip have been at work in the studio. They simply haven't been happy enough, until now, with the results. That sort of frustration is the kind of thing to break a band's spirits, but in "Atlantic Blue," there's reason for optimism: picking up where Drift
left off, it feels like the band have never been away.
Ahead of Saturday's release show at the Turf Club, Gimme Noise called up singer and guitarist, Nienaber, while she was on break from a double-shift at work. She elaborated on where the band have been all this while, and where they plan to go from here.See Also:
