Eskimeaux is the recording project of songwriter and producer Gabrielle Smith. Smith started using the moniker in 2007, releasing experimental and noise albums through 2010, and developing the sound over the years into the realm of more structured songwriting (2011’s “Two Mountains”), EDM (2012’s “Eskimeaux”), and more recently, as evident in new record “O.K.” beat-driven and poetic bedroom pop. Eskimeaux is a founding member of The Epoch, a Brooklyn-based songwriting and art collective. Eskimeaux performs live as a four-piece, in which Gabrielle Smith (vocals and guitar) is supported by Epoch members Oliver Kalb (synthesizer), Felix Walworth (drums), and Jack Greenleaf (bass). The live band replaces the subtleties of the record with a more driving, dynamic approach to the songs.
