Biography

"It's like being intimate with total strangers." That is how Rachel Stolte of Great Northern describes the feeling of performing live and creating a connecting with her audience. The sentiment could be duly applied to the band's latest release, Remind Me Where the Light Is, on which Stolte and co-writer Solon Bixler pour so much of themselves into their highly personal lyrics ...

Editorial Reviews

Review

The Stevie Nicks-con-juring rock and roll songs couldn't be better! --Los Angeles Magazine

The music that Great Northern plays is much more than something to get you moving... it's something with much more meaning. Something that creates memories. Something that becomes a soundtrack for events in life that I previously explained. This was one of those shows where you look around at the people around you, and feel like you're a part of something that only you and the crowd at that time will ever be a part of, no matter how many other shows go on. --Indie Rock Reviews

It's haunting and it's powerful. --Absolute Punk

Product Description

Trading Twilight for Daylight is a collection of shimmeringly lovely yet wildly contrasting shades of the pop song experience. Densely layered melodies are draped with Stolte's and Bixler's signature velvety chimes, stately piano, luxuriant keyboard string flourishes and smartly counterpointed electric and acoustic guitars. The songs often seem to suggest the rich emotional textures of a daydream afternoon, as sunshine gently dims into the dark. The sensual fullness of the sound is like soaking in a bath of warm frequencies. Great Northern songs are genuinely, memorably melodic, and the many melodies within each track that makes them enjoyable to return to again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ethereal, contemplative, polished. June 27, 2007
By Lavode
Format:Audio CD
Great Northern sounds a great deal like Elliot Smith, with a tiny bit of The Cranberries thrown in for good measure. The overall style is mellow, with haunting vocals that are reminiscent of Sun King by The Beatles. The sound is consistent, and the samples available are a good indication of the entire album.

It really is Shoegazing music, but the vocalists are too powerful to be firmly put in this category.

If there is any criticism worth a one star deduction, it is that the music itself, while well orchestrated, is a bit simple. Contrast that with Smith, who threw a lot of goings on behind his melodies, and made for far more interesting compositions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Wizards December 9, 2007
By Ishmael
Format:Audio CD
So, I was working my way down Nic Harcourt's top ten album list for 2007. Lots of good music but nothing I got too excited about until I got to number seven, which was Great Northern. I listened to them live on KCRW and then I listened to CD versions and I was convinced. Beautifully produced, with great harmonies and soaring choruses.

5.0 out of 5 stars GreatGreat July 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first heard them a few weeks ago at their show in Chicago and they can really rock. I was very impressed to listen to the album later and find them to be just at good in the studio. These days it seems that all too often you either get one or the other. I can't get enough of the vocals, the songs are arranged nicely, and there is something about the album which has kept it on repeat for the past week and a half.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Of 2007 (Without A Doubt) December 15, 2007
By oxxo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Forget about who they supposedly sound like or how complex/simple their music is/isn't, just buy it. An astonishingly solid debut that has easily become my most played disc of the year, especially "Low Is A Height".

Also available (only from iTunes as of writing) is a new 5 song EP "Sleepy Eepee" plus a bonus album track "Winter"--all worth having.
