About Kuinka
Website | Facebook | Instagram | TwitterYouTube | Spotify

Described by NPR Music as joyous folk pop, Kuinka “laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyn’s mid-aughts guitar-rock revival” (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, ukulele, and synthesizers. For all of their sonic experimentation, the Seattle quintet songs and live shows are linked by an infectious energy that remains present in everything they do. Their new full-length album Shiny Little Corners is out now.

“Kuinka crafts songs that are engaging and original with a proper amount of established canon and innovation. Stories are laced through the lyrics, there are celebrations as well as lamentations—there is synth and cello! It is such a wonderful thing to hear a sound you’ve adored for so long ameliorated like this, with nothing missing, only new possibilities added to the mix.” -Paste Music & Daytrotter

“Seraphic vocals bookended by ukulele, cello, and heavy percussion will leave you feeling giddy and glad to be alive.” -The Stranger

About Bach Mai
Website | Facebook | Instagram | Bandcamp | YouTubeSpotify

Omaha indie pop punk band, Bach Mai, began in 2013 with one member and a pocketful of lyrical musings and chords. Dreams untempered, the band has grown to a five person outfit dedicated to sharing music that prioritizes emotional vulnerability for those that grew up obsessed with finding meaning in words, particularly when they had none. Bach Mai attempts to find purpose amongst familiar themes of heartache, love and hope. This music is for the nerds, the minorities, the emotionally unavailable, those just learning to be a part of everything else.

Bach Mai is also just a bunch of friends having good time and they want to share all the love they got.
