Combining a layered instrumental foundation with driving rhythms and melodic vocals, Northern Room spent the next six months crafting their unique sound. Then, in the Spring of 2005, they fled their home state of Wisconsin and recorded the Last Embrace EP in Nashville, Tennessee.

This first official recording, released independently in the United States in February of 2006, includes the dreamy Galaxy, the haunting This Wreckage, and the electronic-flavored Last Embrace.

Is there any chance I could get the instrumental track of your "We're On Fire" remix? I would love to do a mashup featuring your track. I have no intention of making a profit; it's just a hobby of mine.
Thanks so much

Just visited your web site to purchase a CD and was stunned by the news that the band has broken up. (The subject of the cryptic comments below by TempleScene and lankysob.) You guys make fantastic music, and it is a real loss not to be able to look forward to anything new. I wish each of you the very best.

I first listened to We're on Fire for the first time about half an hour ago and the song has been on repeat since! Just stopping by to say that I love your music and I'll be recommending it to all of my friends. I am not sure what people below this message are referring to but I hope that all is well and I wish you best of luck for the future.
