We’re super excited to announce this month’s lineup, as its been in the works for a while. Read the bios from the artists below and you’ll see why this just might be the most emo 8static ever:
Starscream is Damon Hardjowirogo and George Stroud of New York City, two italo disco obsessors who make emotional music with Commodore 64’s and Nintendo Game Boy’s.
Hovering in the internet somewhere between Portland and Chicago, Greenleaf is an electronic pen-pal collaboration between Asif Siddiky and Drew Fernando. Inspired by a mutual love for disturbing cinematic moments, their music pairs rich, dream-like atmospheres with sharp edges and crushing beats.
Bear & Walrus is Chad Clikeman and Zachary Reese. They blend 8-bit music with piano power ballads, noisy post-rock and good intentions.
enso is Alex Bond, a live visualist and illustration student from NY currently living in Philly. He enjoys art nouveau, old computers, outer space, and good vibes. His work has been exhibited at the Esther M. Klein Gallery in Philadelphia and at the Playlist show at iMAL in Brussels.
OK, you know the deal – check out the music and links on the left and make sure to RSVP for reduced admission. See you in a few weeks! 🙂
