Silentshout
Silentshout
Hailing from Los Angeles, SILENTSHOUT is an exploratory avant-pop duo comprised of singer/dancer/multi-instrumentalist Alina Cutrono and composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Theo Karon. Their sound is characterized by Alina’s disarmingly intimate and direct vocals, bolstered by a blend of dark synth pop, musique concrete, experimental dance music and the shrieking acoustical oddness of the classical avant-garde. The duo draws inspiration from Bjork, Kate Bush, Robert Wyatt, and Vangelis to craft sonic worlds that underpin the exaltation and terror of their lyrics, evoking the oppressive paranoia of postmodern sci-fi as a mirror held to the present era. Their live show is explosive and constantly evolving, supported by a rotating cast of members and instrumentation, while the band’s studio work incorporates cutting-edge electronic minimalism, experimental analog processes, and ambitious large ensemble arrangements on equal footing. Their debut album, You Will Learn, is slated to be released in 2018.

DANKE HAS BEEN MAKING MUSIC SINCE SHE WAS A YOUNG GIRL. SHE WOULD SING MELODIES IN THE BATH TO HERSELF BEFORE BED, UNTIL SHE DISCOVERED A COMPANION IN THE PIANO AT AGE 10. SHE DIDN’T TAKE TO INSTRUCTION BUT RATHER WORKED OUT HER OWN MUSICAL LANGUAGE WRITING SONG AFTER SONG. AS SHE ENTERED HER TEENS, SHE STARTED HEARING THE 90s TRIP-HOP AND AMBIENT GENRES, WHOSE SOUNDS IGNITED HER PRACTICE, SPARKING THE FIERY FRESH CIRCUS OF BEATS, VOICE AND MELODY THAT SHE COMMANDS AS DANKE TODAY.
EVERYTHING FROM FRANK ZAPPA'S "HOT RATS" TO ERYKAH BADU'S "MAMA'S GUN" IS HEARD BLASTING FROM DANKE'S CHAMBERS. EMBRACING THE INFLUENCE OF MANY DIFFERENT GENRES, SETTINGS AND EXPERIENCES, DANKE'S MUSIC IS UNUSUAL, YET UNIVERSAL. HER CATCHY MELODIES, EPIC HARMONIES, UNIQUE PROGRESSIONS AND FAT BEATS MAKE "DANKE SOUND" APPEALING TO EVEN THE MOST JADED LISTENER. SHE NOW LIVES IN LOS ANGELES, WHERE SHE CONTINUES TO WRITE, CREATE AND ALTOGETHER EXPAND UPON HER INCREASINGLY BOLD MUSICAL ENDEAVORS.
POLARTROPICA
POLARTROPICA
POLARTROPICA makes crystal-cool, dreamy, orchestral electro/synth pop that will tickle your ears and imagination. The debut EP Astrodreams is set to be released on Lolipop Records (cass) on March 29, 2016! Intertwined within the "swirly burst of dreamy reverie" (Free Bike Valet) are themes of isolation, injustice, heartbreak, and corruption - all set under the glittery futuristic synths and classical string arrangements.

Combining her love for classical, pop and indie rock music, Ihui Wu (keyboardist for Sanglorians, Simone White, Ghostel) holed up in her tiny cottage in Highland Park and wrote the songs together with fellow music lover and friend Roman Salas. The songs were recorded with Silverlake-based producer C.M. Rodriguez over one of the hottest summers in California. With the help of many talented musicians, including Morgan Paros on violin, Joe Santa Maria on saxophone and Lauren Elizabeth Baba on viola/violin, the vision for Astrodreams came to life!! Come away to a distant land where macarons grow on trees, fuzzy baby flamingos nap in the warm sunshine and glitter clouds line the sky!

Inspired by sparkling mineral water, Totoro, Quentin Tarantino, James Bond and Aaliyah, POLARTROPICA is Ihui (eeway) Wu, Graham Chapman, Andrew Lessman and Alexander Noice and super secret special guests!!!
