Incan Abraham was founded in a garage in Rhinebeck, New York, in June 2009. In the fall of that year, the band relocated to Los Angeles, the hometown of three of its members, and Teddy, the only New Yorker, moved out West for the band. Since then, the band has released two EPs, Adult World (2010) and SUNSCREEN (2011), and maintained a constant stream of live shows in Southern California, as well as more far-flung appearances at CMJ 2010, San Francisco’s Noise Pop Festival, and SXSW 2011.
With a sound at once welcoming and exotic, Incan Abraham has received praise from NPR, TIME Magazine, and a number of respected local, national and foreign blogs. Earlier this year, the band launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new series of recordings, and was able to meet and exceed its fundraising goal by a substantial margin. The fruit of that effort, a new short-form album titled Ancient Vacation, will be released in October 2011. In support of this release, the band will return to New York for this year’s CMJ.
