A Thousand Hours is an ethereal dream pop project with hints of shoegaze, post-punk, darkwave, slowcore and other melancholic sounds. It is a collaborative group with no set lineup (in the vein of 4AD luminaries This Mortal Coil). Their debut album "Endless Grey" was released March 17, 2017.
Reviews of Endless Grey
- "...Endless Grey is as close to twentieth century existentialism as you’ll hear this side of Leonard Cohen. And, like that philosophical standpoint, the depressingly absurd nature of Endless Grey is its own solution.
It’s an album that deserves to be heard from start to finish and, by the time the familiar guitar riff of ‘The Desolate Hour’ appears near the end of the record, you are surrendered to Endless Grey, adrift on the bliss of acceptance, and insulated from the outside world..."
- "...‘Endless Grey’ is as close to its title as it can get; darkness and a heel dragging tempo carries many of the songs around, dragging them behind on a metal chain of slow, heavy sounds and passages. There are the occasional tracks where the band take their foot off the accelerator and present a brighter, more upbeat dream pop influenced song. But for the most part, they remain within the parameters of classic coldwave...****1/2" Primal Music Blog
- "A Thousand Hours have, in a very short time, constructed an entire album that invests in a multitude of genres and yet makes the entire LP sound coherent. The center of the album’s construction is a steady slowcore sensibility that continually morphs and adapts to shoegaze, post punk, and psychedelia. Endless Grey is an impressive set of slowgaze tracks that dazzle from start to finish..." Somewhere Cold
