Diving into decades of electronica and crunchy sound effects, field recordings and animal sounds, blended with an infectious Latin influence, Californian duo abracadabra’s new album ‘shapes & colors’ shimmies with the charismatic energy of Lizzy Mercier Descloux, the dub hits of Scientist, and the idiosyncrasies of Deerhoof offering an ornate alternative to traditional guitar pop chord progressions as they layer danceable motifs.
‘shapes & colors’ has been described as “a mind-expanding experience, well worth the backwards time travel” (The Quietus). “If the fantasy of a King Tubby-produced Tom Tom Club floats your boat, then this infectious debut will surely hit the spot.” (Electronic Sound) and, it “Bristles with contemporary freshness and wonky charm” (Uncut). Their lead single ‘talk talk’ was a hit among the folks at the BBC, making its way onto The 6 Music Playlist.
abracadabra hit the road earlier this year with their 5-piece live band, touring to SXSW before a series of dates in the UK supporting The Go! Team. They’re thrilled to hop across the pond again later this year, this time as a headliner with dates in the EU as well as the UK. https://linktr.ee/abracadabramusic
+ Fruity Water: Fruity Water are a Dream Pop Acid House duo from Brighton with two albums released on Big Salad Records. “Fruity Water create a spider’s web of sonic intrigue with their pulsating guitar arpeggios and electronic rhythms that reminds of an early Durruti Column and the innovative early days of Factory Records.” – John Robb (Louder Than War) https://www.
+ Bobbysmiles:Taking influence from artists such as King Krule, Father John Misty & Connan Mockasin to craft their sonic palette, Bobbysmiles takes the distinct, bubbly sound of bedroom-pop and merges it with the thoughtful arrangement and nuance of modern folk artists.
