Athens, Georgia, United States (1998 – present)

pacificUV is frequently categorized as utilizing elements of Dream-pop, Post-Rock, Shoegaze, and Space Rock. The band was formed in Athens, Georgia, United States in 1998. Founding members include Howard Hudson, Clay Jordan, and Lucas Jensen. Their first full-length record (titled Longplay 1 when originally pressed on CD, but later renamed with an eponymous title) was released on WARM Recordings in 2002, and was produced by Andy LeMaster (member of Now It’s Overhead).

After a national tour, and nearly universal acclaim for their debut record (including praise from Rolling Stone Magazine, who called the album a “masterpiece”), the initial formation of the band dissolved. Jordan relocated to Portland and enlisted the help of Kevin Davis (of Glowworm), Jesse Robert W. (also of Glowworm), Mike Erwin (formerly of 7 Years in Space) and Matt Kline. Shortly after the Portland lineup was solidified, WARM released a 4-song EP featuring three unreleased tracks and an Eluvium remix of L.A.P.D. vs N.Y.P.D.

In February of 2008, the band released their second full-length LP, titled Longplay 2 (2008). The record features vocals by Carolyn Berk (of Lovers ) and the artwork of Chris A’lurede. Longplay 2 (2008) received praise from SPIN, NPR, and Pitchfork, and the album opener, “Alarmist”, was featured prominently in the “Californication” season three finale.
