Gringo Star is an American indie rock group from Atlanta, Georgia. They have released four albums and toured internationally.
The Furgiuele brothers were born in Atlanta to Peggy Mendel and Sam Furgiuele, an attorney. They grew up in Boone, NC, before returning to the city after High School in 2002. The group was founded in late 2007 by brothers Nicholas and Peter Furgiuele previously of A Fir-Ju Well.They were joined by Peter Delorenzo and Matt McCalvin. This line-up recorded a self-titled EP.
Gringo Star's debut album All Y'all was self-released in 2008 and subsequently distributed in Europe by Cargo Records in 2010. It was produced by Ben H. Allen. The album was described in by Pitchfork as "the songs are strong, but it's the sweat that will need to do the convincing" while PopMatters found it resembling The Kinks.
The band signed to Brooklyn-based record label Gigantic Music for Count Yer Lucky Stars, released on October 25, 2011. It was also produced by Allen and engineered by James Salter. Rolling Stone called it "modern garage-rock" with "newfound psychedelic, meandering impulses". Popmatters found it "lacks the sense of fun",while Consequence of Sound described the album as having "simple, driving hooks and catchy songwriting". The album made many lists for one of the best albums of the year. The song "Shadow" from Count Yer Lucky Stars was featured on NPR's All Songs Considered in its 2011 Fall Music Preview.
The band was featured in a 2011 documentary, Hurry up and Wait. McCalvin was replaced by Christopher Kaufmann soon afterwards. Delorenzo left the band in the following year.
The band released the album Floating Out To See that they recorded, mixed, and produced themselves, at Studio 234 Atlanta, released October 22, 2013, on their own label, My Anxious Mouth Records. This album, too, garnered positive attention, with some music writers picking it as one of the 10 best albums of the year and one saying that it was a "testament of what can be done if you take a risk or simply use your imagination." Their song "Find a Love" from Floating Out to See was featured as the "Song of the Day" by KEXP. Amazing for a self-released album from an independent band, the album reached #29 on the CMJ Top 200 charts and #13 on the FMQB Submodern Charts. Kaufmann left the band in 2013.
