GRÜN WASSER (Chicago / Holodeck Records)
Arising at the forefront of contemporary underground pop, Chicago-based duo GRÜN WASSER shapes the course of minimal electronic music and blurs the boundaries of art, songwriting and performance on their latest full-length Not Ok with Things out October 4, 2019. Vocalist Keely Dowd and producer Essej Pollock artfully bend and reconfigure popular trends in dance music into unconventionally catchy songs and a powerful live show. Their unique mix of hardware, software and sampling coalesce into irresistible rhythms and driving sequences that fuse perfectly with Dowd’s distinctive alto voice, forming music that is as instantly appealing as it is fascinating. With lyrics inspired by personal struggles and social inequality, GRÜN WASSER raises the bar on innovation in modern pop as they arrive on the national stage with Not Ok with Things.

Small Crimes

The video for “The Sad Poetry Of Violence” pulls the viewer into a kaleidoscopic fever dream filled with vibrant hues, blindfolded figures, silk flowers, and invocative dance. Inspired by 1970s experimental film and theatre, the video is an exploration of emotional energy and personal rituals. The themes, developed by the band, touch on ideas of loss of self within the creative process. “The Sad Poetry of Violence” was filmed in San Francisco and created by Dustin Khebzou and Megan Biscieglia. It is the first single from the project’s EP, Blue Landscape, and was released digitally and on cassette on 2/04/19 by Glowing Dagger. VVD WNDWS is the Oakland, CA-based duo of Iso Marcus and Dylan Chapple. Since 2009, under various monikers, they have explored the intersection between sound, field recordings, immersive performance art, and projections with an extended group of collaborators.
