Northern Room creates uplifting atmospheric rock, featuring strong vocals blended with layers of instrumentation.

Formed in the Autumn on 2004 by Andrew Jonathan, Michael Morgan, and brothers Micah and Tony Olla, the quartet were inspired by such diverse genres as shoegaze, new wave, power pop, and indie-rock. Combining a layered instrumental foundation with driving rhythms and melodic vocals, Northern Room spent the next six months crafting their unique sound. Then, in the Spring of 2005, they fled their home state of Wisconsin and recorded the Last Embrace EP in Nashville, Tennessee.

This first official recording, released independently in the United States in February of 2006, includes the dreamy Galaxy, the haunting This Wreckage, and the electronic-flavored Last Embrace. In January of 2007, Northern Room returned to the studio to record an additional four songs which were independently released as the Only Seconds EP, including the atmospheric Stars of God and the driving rock hit We’re On Fire. In April of 2007, Japanese label BM.3 Records released the contents of both EPs as a full-length album — titled Last Embrace — in Japan.

In late 2007, Northern Room combined the ten tracks from both EPs, three live acoustic tracks, and one previously unreleased song — Home — to create Last Embrace - Deluxe Edition. This enhanced CD, which also contains a music video for Last Embrace, was independently released internationally in November of 2007.
