"Surprise, Surprise," a sweet, nostalgia-fueled love flashback. The song ascends into an atmospheric ending that feels like the swirls that a major crush produces in the center of your chest, spinning color wheels that could burst from your throat at any second.
- City Pages
"These five diverse elements of this efficient and harmonious band are what makes this quintet so unique and special"
- Losing Today (Italy)
"Landing Gear doesn't help you descend. Instead, this pop/rock quintet elevates you to an undiscovered stratosphere of shimmering pop beauty. Effortless, exquisite, indelible..."
- Las Vegas Mercury
"Surprise, Surprise may well end up being my favorite local single of the year!"

Winter is arriving, which means time to get back in to the studio. We are working on new songs with the hopes of heading to the cabin again in late January to begin tracking the second half of the album. Can't wait!

Minneapolis' Landing Gear's debut long-player is a stunning mixture of moody guitar textures, rock-n-roll exuberance, and acoustic nuance. Focusing on strong melodies and song craft- the band provides a hefty dose pop sensibility coupled with swirling atmospherics and raw emotion. Landing Gear's sound has been described as "combing emotion passion with powerful, disruptive rock verve..."

"Break Up Songs..." was recorded almost entirely by the band in their own Studio 9 basement bunker in Minneapolis over an esxhaustive 12 month period. The recordings didn't completely gel until Landing Gear enlisted the talents of Bryan Hanna (Faux Jean, Papas Fritas) to put on final production touches and to mix at the Terrarium studio. The results are a distinctive, heady pop classic.
