Album artwork for Active Listening: Night On Earth by Empath

Critically acclaimed debut album from Philadelphia based noise punks, Empath. Featuring members of Perfect Pussy and Waxahatchee. It's a noise-pop classic - a big rainbow of chaos. Think a mix of Neutral Milk Hotel and the early Elephant 6 label releases mixed with Sonic Youth.

Empath goes far beyond the sound of birds faintly chirping. They’re a band that writes songs like communing with nature, bringing all their fuzzed and tripped out idiosyncrasies into harmony. Empath began in 2016 when Garrett Koloski, Emily "Jem" Shanahan, and Catherine Elicson moved into a house in West Philadelphia together, with Randall Coon joining shortly after. Even with the simple vision to shred, there’s a natural sensitivity in the way Empath communicates. Between the contrast of Elicson’s lush, almost delicate vocals, Koloski’s boisterous drumming, and the half-harmonious wash of guitar and Shanahan and Coon’s synths, Empath equips us with a healthy dose of emotional repose.
