Beloved Binge

Beloved Binge

BandRockPunk

Rubble pop rooted in a punk pot infused with a hint of old Greek mountain village uprising.

Biography

ELENI grew up around classical musicians singing x-mas music harmonies with her mother on long trips to California. On Dad-Day Sundays she listened to old Greek songs in a van played from an ash-covered tape recorder.

ROB picked up a guitar at 11 and grew up listening to Metallica, Joy Division, the Beatles and the Doors, which explains his uncanny ability to sing “Riders in the Storm” at karaoke bars.

Beloved Binge formed in Seattle in 2003 and relocated to Durham, North Carolina in October 2005. Beloved Binge are active in their community and recently co-organized the first annual Duo-Fest, an all-day event featuring 15 regional two-pieces from all genres.

"Other Places" was recorded at Zero Return Studios in Atlanta, GA. Their engineer was such an analog-enthusiast that the computer in the console booth had to be removed before he arrived to avoid disturbing him.

"Other Places" is an amalgamation of songs written during Beloved Binge’s transformation from one lifestyle to another, simpler variety.
