Influenced by the lo-fi '90s indie aesthetic of Pavement and Sebadoh and associated with the late-2000s shoegaze revival alongside Banjo or Freakout, Atlas Sound and Big Pink, A Grave with No Name is the musical brainchild of London-based musician Alex Shields. Named after an in-joke that referenced metalcore/emo group As I Lay Dying, Shields began the project in 2006 and recorded half of his 2009 full-length debut Mountain Debris in a church in Stoke Newington, East London. Recruiting bassist Tom King and guitarist Anupa Madawela to flesh out A Grave with No Name's woozy and ethereal pop, the album's resulting hazy, kaleidoscopic sound recalled My Bloody Valentine, Guided by Voices, and the Microphones. A Grave with No Name returned with 2011's Lower, an atmospheric album that spanned two cassettes.
