The Gifted Children is a music collective from Rochester and Buffalo, NY. They've released 13 albums and more than 30 EPs since forming in 1995, and have recorded more than 1300 songs in their 18 year career... they specialize in concise, compelling, slightly cryptic and off-kilter songs, laced with shoegazer atmospherics and electronic noise. lyrics are literate, vivid and slightly obtuse. The Gifted Children live show is an energetic mixture of pop songwriting genius, expert knob-twiddling, great harmonies and off-the-cuff banter. Approachable and self-deprecating, they become fast friends with their audiences.
