Small Black is an indie band from Brooklyn, New York that consists of Ryan Heyner, Josh Kolenik, Juan Pieczanski and Jeff Curtin.
Their sound is commonly described as belonging to the chillwave genre, though the band’s members don’t label themselves as such. Formed at the tail-end of 2008 as a bedroom recording project, Small Black first made waves with their eponymous debut EP. Recorded in the attic of singer Josh’s uncle’s remote Long Island beach-house/surfboard workshop, it served as an ideal introduction to the group with its pulsing patchwork synths and addictive, stay-gold hooks that seemed to unfurl themselves gradually over repeated listens.
Free At Dawn is the first single from their upcoming album, Limits of Desire, out on May 14, 2013.
