Beneath the bright lights and beyond the velvet ropes of Hollywood lies a different Southern California: a desolate land filled with darkness, punctuated by unrealized dreams, and broken down with anguished hearts. Tigercide, formed half a decade ago in LA, gives musical form to this landscape with the ethereal, melancholic vocals of Shexist and the exotic, shadowy, and balanced beats of Saint Brendan.
The post-punk of bands like Joy Division and New Order embodied a de-industrializing Manchester. The Bristol sound of Massive Attack and Portishead gave voice to the multicultural grittiness of their city. So too does the darkwave trip-hop of Tigercide capture the ethos of Angelenos anxious about their future. In a city characterized by soaring rents, temperatures, and population, can there be any more California dreaming?
Singer-songwriter Angie King discovered a passion for singing at a young age in church choir. Her beloved Father was a professional operatic singer/musician who heavily influenced her eclectic sound. Dark and dreamy melodies combined with mystery and illusion interpret the blank narrative.
It’s an art. It’s transcending.
It’s Nura Luca.
Venus in Scorpio
The Venus in Scorpio is the solo music effort of singer-songwriter-producer Philip C Moak. His musical trajectory rooted itself in 2007 when he began to teach himself music production by ear, citing electro-pop and indie acts like Ladytron, Peaches, CSS, Santigold and Yeah Yeah Yeahs among his contemporary influences. His earlier years were impacted by a range of artists, including the Pixies, the B-52s, No Doubt, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Grace Jones, Yoko Ono and Depeche Mode. The result is a brand of synth pop that combines 80s goth-new wave aesthetics with modern dance electro flavor, and a vocal styling reminiscent of glam rock legends Iggy Pop, David Bowie and Brian Ferry.
