In the spring of 2016, Gigi Masin, Jonny Nash and Marco Sterk got together in the studio for the first time since they recorded Clouds, the critically acclaimed debut album from their Gaussian Curve project.
By the time they reconvened in Sterk's new studio in Amsterdam, a stone's throw away from the temporary, second-‐floor space where they recorded Clouds, much had changed. When they first got together in March 2014, it was for a spontaneous, weekend-‐long exploration of shared musical passions. They were merely three new friends expressing themselves, and having huge amounts of fun in the process.
The Distance is a different musical beast to its' predecessor, but shares the same timeless, emotion-rich feel that made Clouds such a hit. While the fundamental ingredients remain the same - Masin's masterly piano and synthesizer work, Nash's blissful, meandering guitar lines, and Sterk's synths, drum machines and production - The Distance is an album brimming with fresh ideas and more complex musical arrangements. It's the sound of three confident collaborators crafting magical musical moments in their own unique way.
