"After-hours Atlanta is an unsavory place. The weekend warriors have fled to the suburbs, the real nightcrawlers are out and about, and the bar staff lets its hair down to get their own party started, which is right where the Constellations' debut CD, Southern Gothic, picks up. The studio project-turned-full-fledged band – rounded out by core members Devin Donnelly, Elijah Jones and Ben H. Allen – envisionedSouthern Gothic as a freak ride into the underbelly of late-night Atlanta. "We wanted to capture those dark and dingy places that you see at 4 or 5 in the morning," explains Allen, who is best known for his studio work with artists such as Christina Aguilera, Gnarls Barkley and Animal Collective. Southern Gothic is a slick pop album, released on Allen's Make Records Not Bombs label. Throughout each song, vocalist Jones channels the spirit of a deranged and street-hardened bard spouting off tales of drugs and urban depravity over a web of intense back beats and a confident disco swagger."
