Allergic to Retro started out in New Zealand in 2008 by Brendan Millward and consisted of an array of members based on whoever was around to play with at the time. Struggling to find the right fit and after releasing a solo album, Brendan made the decision to move from New Zealand to Rochester NY in 2010 to try his hand in the American music scene. In search of a place to stay Jeff Morse offered up a couch in the living room of his tiny apartment.The two found themselves with similar music interests and began writing together. "In the beginning all it really was, was drunken jams at 1am in the morning after too much whiskey but it slowly developed into a sound that we felt needed to be heard".

After meeting bassist Robert Smith in a poker tournament and drummer Andy Collister at the local pub, Allergic to Retro was ready to begin recording their first album. The band draws alot of its influence from Brit rock and indie bands but isnt afraid to and quite often finds themselves writing songs in styles they stumble upon while jamming.
