The Points North' "I Saw Across The Sound" is the product of the eighteen months Chris North Alspach, Regina Peterson and Dylan Clark have spent playing together- contemplating their location in the Eastern Seaboard's northernmost major city, connecting with local literary traditions, and interpreting their rural central Massachusetts childhoods. On "I Saw Across The Sound," vocal harmonies, flute melodies, and bass drum thumps carry the listener through twelve New England ghost-country folk songs, available Oct 1st on vinyl, cassette and digital download from Grinding Tapes Recordings.
Currently based out Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood, The Points North met in rural Pennsylvania in summer 2007, when Clark, Peterson and Alspach played a show there together as members of Tiger Saw and St Joe Hazelwood, in the midst of respective summer tours. The members connected when it was revealed that all were raised in central Massachusetts and months later back home in New England, a new group was formed.
Since their first show in Cambridge in winter 2008, The Points North have played hundreds of shows throughout the northeast including house venues, art spaces, rock clubs, and recently at Harvard Square's legendary Club Passim. To support the release of their first full length, The Points North are currently planning a string of dates around the US, Canada and Australia.
