Cuzco began as a collaboration between a few friends in Charlotte, North Carolina who wanted to experiment musically and shared a passion for math rock and emo music in the era of the 2000s. Shortly after their inception, Cuzco released their debut EP, A Medicine for Melancholy, garnering attention from the math-rock community across the world and catching an online shout out from one of their biggest influences, Clever Girl. Sketchbook marked the second release from Cuzco on Refresh Records.
