Formed in 2010, electro-grungy alt-pop outfit Gag Order was born from a collaboration between singer/songwriter Elaine Davis and Rick Sensenbrenner, Andy Maleh, Chris McQuarrie and later, Grant Davidson. Influences range from 90's grunge and 80's New Wave to Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, Metric, and Massive Attack. However, the unique mix of melodic vocals, synth vibes and driving guitar create a sound that is all their own. Known for their high-energy live shows, Gag Order is a favorite of the Chicago alternative band scene. Gag Order is joy and angst, anger and enthusiasm, a yin and yang of the darkness and light that permeates everyday life.
