The Line of Best Fit

Gengahr haven’t lost the soluble quality of their sound, every intricacy has the ability to melt right in. Elegant and artful to its core, Where Wildness Grows is an impressive step forward from a band who seemingly have more to prove to themselves than anyone else.


‘Where Wildness Grows’ slowly seeps in given time, and when it’s finally settled, feels like it’s been there forever.

Drowned in Sound

They are all white dudes, the friends they take up space with and pretend to exhibit art with are all white dudes, and they have made a second album that sounds more or less like their first one: whiny crooning, bloodless textures, lazy verses about heterosexual romance.

This album is filled with warm and dense instrumentals, drenched in reverb. The catchiness of the previous album is still here, but in a similar manner to the change between Drenge's 2 albums, Gengahr have really filled out their sound with some almost shoe-gazey guitars.
It's great to have an album that doesn't simply repeat their early work, while at the same time doesn't ignore the influences of A Dream Outside.
