Gosh Pith, the Detroit-based duo of Josh Smith (vocals, guitar and production) and Josh Freed (samples, synths and production) have developed a reputation for material that focuses on capturing a specific feeling, rather than a concrete narrative. And as the story goes, their project got their start when the duo of Smith and Freed were wandering the streets of Paris on a 5AM psychedelic walk, and found themselves moved by the sounds of their voices reverberating throughout the narrow streets and passageways. 

Their first single “Waves” manages to be comprised of skittering beats, layers of ominously buzzing synths and vocals fed through layers upon layers of reverb. In some way the sound of this track evokes undulating waves of sound hitting off surfaces at weird angles – all while bearing an uncanny resemblance to both Grave Babies’s latest effort Crusher and to Beacon
