Bird Call
Bird Call
"Astral-pop, spaceage synthwave, we’re falling fast for Bird Call." - The Line of Best Fit

Bird Call is the NYC-based musical project founded by 29 year-old singer and musician Chiara Angelicola. After having written a collection of new songs in the winter, Angelicola approached musician, composer, and orchestrator Bryan Senti (Mark Ronson, Rufus Wainwright, Miike Snow) to produce Bird's first full-length record. Over the course of 12 months, Chiara and Bryan embarked on a musical journey crafting a sonic landscape that encompasses the body of work found in the new record, “Will We Get To Mars?” which FACT mag dubbed "phantasmagoric".

Bird Call explores a range of emotional territory with her voice, vulnerable lyrics, and candid stage presence whilst providing an aural backdrop that is variably danceable, electronically driven, and, at times, futuristic and experimental. Amidst the year of production, Bird lured new fans and perked ears while touring and sharing the stage with indie favorites including Majical Cloudz and Angel Olsen.

The much anticipated Will We Get To Mars digitally released worldwide on September 3rd, 2013 alongside a premiere with UK's The Guardian, who dubbed the record "heart-burstingly lovely..." Jessica Yatrofsky has directed the music video for the self-titled track which premiered with Nylon Magazine October 4th, 2013. We have landed on Mars. Thank God.
Child Actor
Child Actor's dreamily powerful blend of electronics, R&B and indie rock emerged fully formed in early 2012. By the end of the year, they had signed to rising indie label Fake Four Inc., made half a dozen music videos, released their debut LP, Victory, performed their first series of live shows, and caught the attention of dozens of publications from The Fader to The Guardian. Child Actor's omnivorous production consisting of mountains of synths and samples can make for an intense listening experience, but it is always balanced by intimate, enigmatic male/female vocal performances. Child Actor's R&B influences have led some to liken them to groups like the XX and Purity Ring, but their hypnotic, often pleasingly damaged sound has also earned them comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and M83. This show marks the final date of their first west coast tour alongside like-minded label mates Blue Sky Black Death.
