Gozer and the Gatekeeper is a duo consisting of Ally Morton (Massa Confusa, Five Pence Game, Not Myself, Youkol) and Aiur Retegi (Pixalino, Not Myself, ex-Derive, ex-Kaizen, ex-Ventura) based in San Sebastián / Garai. The project was born out of various recordings Aiur did for Ally’s collaborative Five Pence Game recording project, and their band together as Not Myself. Their debut release stemmed from ‘Pulse’, which was originally intended to be a Five Pence Game collaboration, but Ally saw potential in this type of sound / way of working for a new duo project. ‘Pulse’ is about attraction, the transient nature of being human, and how we should not think of ourselves as the superior species on Earth. ‘Slow Down’ was created during lockdown and makes reference to the impact and management of the COVID-19 situation.
