Nov. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- North Carolina band thinks 4 songs is enough for an albumChapel Hill, NC (November 29, 2012) - Gentle Robot, an indie rock band from Chapel Hill, don't think it's lazy to release a record with less than ten songs. "Four songs, that's almost twenty minutes," says bassist Matt Teten. "People don't have the attention span for twelve songs any more."

Upcoming bands have historically released shorter records in their formative years. Four-song EPs have "long been popular with punk and indie bands" according to Ricardo Baca of The Denver Post. Teten claims "we're just starting out," and the group "just doesn't have the magic number of songs for a cohesive twelve-song album." The EP was recorded in an 8x10' storage space over the course of 6 weeks and mixed by the band.

Gentle Robot's breakthrough new EP, We'll Make It, is available this week for free on, and was recently released on and Spotify.
