The math-pop quartet Ancient Greeks came together in 1998. Comprised of Chris Warland (vocals/saxophone), Nathaniel Braddock (guitar), Andy Rench (bass) and Timothy P. Stevens (drums), Ancient Greeks deliver a sharp, guitar-driven hook. They're rooted in post-bop Jazz, bossa nova and 20th century minimalism while also influenced by the ecletic worldbeat sounds of 70s African pop. Over the course of two years, the band gigged in and around their native Chicago. In summer 2001, Ancient Greeks began work on their debut album. They joined TV Pow's Michael Hartman and Jeremy Boyle of Joan of Arc for the recording of The Song Is You. Flameshovel Records also inked the Ancient Greeks a deal in early 2002. The Song Is You appeared in January 2003.
