Extra Life was a band led by New York-based guitarist/vocalist Charlie Looker (member of Ocrilim, ex-Zs and ex-Dirty Projectors). While the music retains some of the heady instrumental abstraction of his work in Zs, Extra Life moves into a far more melodic song-based realm. The compositions are still epic, complex and aggressive, yet with a lush, personal, dramatic spirit; dark, heavy avant chamber pop with a cold Gothic beauty echoing that of Medieval plainsong. In addition to Looker’s voice and guitar, the band includes Tony Gedrich (bass, member of Archaeopteryx), Ian Antonio (drums, member of Zs), Travis Laplante (keyboard, tenor saxophone, member of Little Women) and Caley Monahan-Ward (violin, member of Nat Baldwin Band and Snowblink).
