The band consists of two members, Jordan Pier and Adam Sanborne. leaving richmond began in New York as a side project of Pier and it wasn’t until Pier moved to Los Angeles and began working with Sanborne did the project truly, officially take form. The band released their first EP in 2010 and now resides in Los Angeles, CA.
The music is entirely instrumental and makes use of layered, effected guitars, electronic bass, drums and synthesizers. The overall sound and style of the bands ranges from downtempo and chill-out to cinematic, climactic atmospheric rock.
To date the band has released 2 EPs. The first: The Secret Traditions of Washington Ave in 2010 and the second: The Bird and the Submarine in 2012. December 2012 also saw the release of the single Planning for the Routine. A third release, Human Minds, Robot Hearts is slated for release in 2013.
