The Constellations: December

From their Album Southern Gothic.

Working in the shadowy confines of an unremarkable Atlanta studio, Grammy-winning producer Ben H. Allen of Gnarls Barkley fame, vocalist Elijah Jones and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Devin Donnelly spent the past two years jamming on ideas and crafting songs for a concept record loosely linked together under the moniker The Constellations.

Working without a structure and with no definite plans to form a band or to release material, the three spent months tossing ideas at their imaginary band only to see what would stick. Other artists would come and lay down ideas: MC’s, singers, drunken drummers, hand-clapping American Apparel models, drug dealers, club owners; the elite of the Atlanta underground. Before the talented three could realize it, they and their motley crew had made a record, all without one show under their belts. The Constellations was born.
