|Gonculator pioneers a new and exciting genre of music. Rooted in rock from the 60s and 70s, they add a modern character to the ideals of the legendary artist. With succinct songwriting and lush harmonies, Gonculator explores themselves and the world at large. At times masked by poignant, humorous literal imagery, they depict both the serendipity and dark irony of being. Thriving upon a creative energy greater than themselves, Gonculator never fails to leave jaw-dropped and wide-eyed witnesses begging for more.
