Gabe Greenland’s song “Stories We Tell Ourselves” feels like an intimate lo-fi rock ballad. Vocally the song seems to fit into the emo genre. It starts out feeling more stripped down, and eventually builds with electric guitars and drum crashes into something much bigger sounding. The lyrics in the song urge to be listened to as the rhymes are genius and unexpected. If you love the sound of early emo, you will love Gabe Greenland’s sound.
Gabe Greenland grew up in Los Angeles and is now based in Brooklyn. He mentions nearby places in the lyrics of “Stories We Tell Ourselves” such as Long Island City and Manhasset.
