ABOUT

We need a drummer!

When we started five years ago, we were doing art performances in art venues (galleries, art schools, etc), leaning heavily on multi-media and backing tracks.

Now we want to present a more fluid and flexible live show, and that means swapping backing tracks for live drums.

The music is pretty structured, with a jazz-pop approach that brings in lots of different sounds along the way -- psychedelic breaks, Americana, blues, opera, even a power ballad if we're being honest.

What we want from a drummer is someone who can help shape the emotional character of our set -- a strong backbone groove of course, but also sensitive to the small moments in need of just the right articulation.

Ideally, the drum kit would be a simple jazz kit supplemented by some digital pads, to bring in some electronic elements. Ideally.

We have a great time together arranging the songs and figuring out how everyone's role can make each song better, and we would hope (expect!) the drummer to share their thoughts in that process too. Waaaay more fun that way.

Our practice space is in Long Island City.
