1704 is a gentle and complex album that arouses both mind and body. Produced by good pal/music lover, Ian Ball of Gomez, 1704 was recorded in a somewhat spontaneously haphazard style on portable recording equipment in various make-shift locations across the globe and finally mixed at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in a tiny town called Box, in the UK.

Formed just over two years ago and having performed one show together, Gelbison recorded a self-titled EP (their first collaboration with Ball) in a Bondi lounge room and released it through their own label Cheap Lapels. The EP version of the track Modern Station found its way onto the Triple J airwaves not long after. This was followed by a buzz of activity including the album's recording, signing to Virgin Australia, a UK tour, and the initial success already garnered by Metal Detector, Homelands and Good God the first three singles off the album.


What the critic's are saying about "1704":

"...from the far side of the Pacific: 1704, the debut album by Sydney's Gelbison, was produced by Ian Ball of the British band Gomez, a synchronous pairing since both groups subscribe to similarly expansive notions of psychedelia. But the shock and pleasure of this record is not in how far afield Gelbison roam in search of transcendance: country sadness dressed in gothic strings and Renaissance trumpet; cranial-drill guitar and machine-drum hop; spaced-Beatles pop. The wonder is in the liquid but eloquent way this young quartet bundles it all together." David Fricke --> Rolling Stone

"Easily the best album of 2003 for colouring outside the lines."
(4/5. Scene Magazine)

"It's not just that it is so good on its own terms, but rarely does a band's debut album appear so fully formed and assured...A phrase which kind of sums up the whole record. Glorious"
(Drum Media. Album of the week)
