Imaginary People formed as a collective of individuals coming from differing backgrounds and assembled in late 2012 by core members Dylan Von Wagner[vocals], Mark Roth[guitar], Justin Repasky[keys], Joe Zdaa[drums], and supplemented in the studio and live by Grant Zubritsky [bass]. On this EP, Imaginary People seek to carve out a niche for themselves with a style designated as Dance Americana.
Recorded with Matt Boynton[MGMT, Kurt Vile] and Kevin McMahon [Titus Andronicus, Real Estate], Imaginary People found the best path to their EP was to bang it out live in a room and to keep things as raw as possible. Complimenting themselves with synth and strings, they round out their EP with a bit of the classic wall of sound and some kinetic big beats.
