Biography

New York City (2009 – present)

Jolly is a / rock band formed in 2009 in New York City.

JOLLY consists of:

Anadale (vocals, guitar)
Joe Reilly (keyboard, sampler)
Anthony Rondinone (bass, vocals)
Louis Abramson (drums)

JOLLY is the summation of four minds set out to revolutionize the art of sound. Under the guise of rock music, JOLLY has devised a therapeutic auditory experience scientifically designed to bring the brain to a state of pure happiness. By combining sophisticated arrangements, ambient textures, aggressive dynamics, and infectious melodies with binaural brain wave technology, a new medium is born.

In July 2009, JOLLY’s first trial, entitled Forty-Six Minutes, Twelve Seconds of Music (Galileo/ProgRock Records), received critical praise for its original sound, unique progressions, and finely crafted production. The cult popularity of this release led to a European tour with Polish progressive rock veterans Riverside, and a record deal with InsideOut Music/Century Media Records. Along with impressive musicianship and refreshing writing styles, JOLLY’s first album contained a binaural brain wave phenomenon previously unheard of in rock music. Embedded throughout the album are binaural tones, which result from the combination of slightly offset frequencies played simultaneously, thereby altering the brain’s natural frequency. Scientific research suggests that such tones can enrich feelings of relaxation, focus, creativity, and happiness when experienced in headphones.

    Music is acceptable, but "binaural brain wave technology"?? WTF? First, binaural waves' effectiveness is disputed and not scientifically proven; personally I am completely unaffected. It's the same shit like crystal healing. Second, how is that supposed to work, by mistuning guitars? Instead of 440 Hz, 435 and 445 Hz are used or what? Untuned instruments nauseate me over long periods even more. What a bunch of bullcrap.

    Tired of new age bs, and stumbled on this. Nice, but I guess the "binaural brain wave technology" is a joke.

    It's impossible that such a great band have so few listeners. Their music is just excellent ! I guess as the time goes by they will be only more and more popular.
