Strange & the Familiars bring you songs from beyond the veil, words of warning and mourning for all that humanity might lose. Dark humor and macabre lyrics lace story-minded music with a gothic flare. Orchestral rock and jazzy melodies combine with smoky vocals to paint a soundtrack to a world both strange and familiar, where our dreams and nightmares come out to play.
Brooklyn-based musical duo Charming Disaster perform playfully dark songs about death, crime, myth, magic, science, and the occult. Inspired by the gothic humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret, they write songs that tell stories, using two voices to explore dark narratives and characters with a playfully macabre sensibility.
Jet Black Pearl’s smartly wacky songs sound like a mad hatter’s European tea party with a funky attitude. Before your very eyes, she creates grooves and loops of flute, plastic bottles, rubber pigs, vocal percussion and harmonies, while squeezing her red accordion. She also might do a little dance for you. But watch your own feet… they’re already wiggling!
