After a solid year of live shows, 2024 finds indie synth rock/pop band Gilda House mostly at home in the studio, honing their signature sonic & safe embrace. Gilda House’s invitation remains open for you to lean in, dance, and meditate on aspects of self and community with their latest release titled, Anam Cara.

Anam Cara is an electric indie love anthem embodying the spirit of discovery and the unexpected revealing a timeless deep connection. First there’s a recognition, then a celebration, and a continued acknowledgment that this kind of love has a mind of its own and though we don’t necessarily choose it, it always finds us.

The band includes Meg Gildehaus (lyrics, lead vocals, bass synth), Tony Morales (guitar, keys, backup vocals), and Nick Miles (drums, lighting design). Sean Lynch manages, records, and mixes live shows. All four contribute to writing and everyone brings a unique skill-set, hard work, and a humble attitude to the project. It’s a motivating environment and their best work is just beginning to come to fruition.
