The energetic San Diego duo Gloomsday formed in 2007 by couple Justin Cota (guitar, vocals) and Lori Sokolowski (drums, vocals). With influences ranging from the jangle of garage, indie rock, and pop to the heaviness of doom, noise, and punk they make two musicians sound like more. Accenting full, rumbling baritone guitar with propulsive and booming beats their driving and dynamic sound took shape with each recording. Maintaining a D.I.Y. aesthetic, they released their first EP in 2010 followed by Believe the Hype ‘Cause It’s All You Got (2011), Paradise Tossed (2013), Sunburn Sessions 7-inch (2015), and Worst Coast Scenario (2016). In 2018 they released Anxiety, Disbelief, Wonder, showcasing vocal and instrumental tones inspired by the darker aspects of post-punk and new wave, setting it apart from previous releases.
