Originally a trained drummer, Olivier Perez initiated the Garciaphone project in 2007 when living in Oslo, right after returning from a 3-week tour of the United States with the New-Yorker Charles Zerner. It was a few years before, when in Mexico City without his original rhythmic instrument that he had started composing on the guitar.

After the EP “Divisadora” published in late 2011,  the first LP of the band – now officially a trio – was recorded in December 2012 by Peter Deimel (The Wedding Present, Chokebore, Deus, etc ). Through the full length of the 12 songs, we wander through enigmatic lyrics and compositions that sway from light to chiaroscuro and from tenderness to tearing apart.
