“Since 2015, the band have been wooing the venues of their New York hometown with thought-provoking writing and the ability to instantly redirect ears.” -All Things Go
“Cale’s light, spry vocals carry the album through various sounds and genres.” – Impose Magazine
Brooklyn-based alternative rock band Cale and the Gravity Well announce their EP Creation Myths, due out in November 2017. The five track EP comes highly anticipated after the group’s 2016 debut album The Age Of Envy, which received raves from tastemakers like Impose Magazine and Music Existence.
Today, Cale and the Gravity Well releases “Zambia” via All Things Go who stated, “This is an addictive one, with call backs to fringe indie rock of the mid-2000’s. They clearly know where they come from and, more importantly, where they’re headed.” This is the first offering from Creation Myths, an EP that crafts a story of youth, anxiety, and confrontation with the future. Frontman Cale Bondermann says of the first single, “Zambia is about feeling like life is mundane, and that boredom and unfulfillment is the fault of your environment or other external factors instead of you. By that logic, escaping to some exotic and romantic land might be the impetus for internal change, which of course, doesn’t really work.”
Creation Myths was curated by Jim Fairchild, Modest Mouse guitarist turned producer, and engineered by Mike Cresswell (Sun Kill Moon, ALO). Bonderman’s eclectic sensibilities combined with Fairchild’s decades of innovative arrangement experience to create an EP both powerful in its construction and humble in its aesthetic. Ordinary life may be the subject of the EP, but Creation Myths is careful to avoid banality or limitation. Creation Myths will be released digitally and physically (?) via Made In The Shade Records.

Formed by front man Cale Bonderman, the creative center and principal songwriter, Cale & the Gravity Well made their breakthrough playing the storied clubs of their home base, New York City. Bonderman’s talent flourished early, first bubbling out of coffeehouses and musical theater in his native state of Colorado before finally channeling his music into a big band sound appropriate for the big city. After releasing their debut album, “The Age of Envy”, under independent label Made in the Shade Records, Cale and the Gravity Well has gone on to receive critical acclaim in the alternative rock scene and beyond. Now a veteran of well known New York venues such as The Bitter End and The Bowery Electric, as well as festivals like Bonanza Campout, Cale & the Gravity Well has a lot in store for 2017.
