Salt Cathedral
Salt Cathedral
Salt Cathedral is the electronic project of New York based Colombian musicians Juliana Ronderos and Nicolas Losada. Their music combines elements of trip-hop and ambient genres with folkloric influences from many cultures. The band's most recent record, "Oom Velt," makes reference to the individuality of experience – the discrete "worlds" as they are experienced by different organisms. Guardian UK, in their coverage of the EP's lead single "Holy Soul," describes Salt Cathedral as "purveyors of breezy electronic pop with lightly tropical rhythms and deathlessly pretty vocals’’.

Salt Cathedral has performed alongside acts like Hundred Waters, Young and Sick, Tei Shi, Until The Ribbon Breaks, Sonnymoon and Cibo Matto. Onstage, the band combines live instrumentals, electronics, and choreographed lighting to create an immersive environment of "crackling energy" (Pitchfork).
Sur Back
Sur Back
Sur Back is the experimental pop brainchild of former Florida ballerina, Caroline Sans. A producer at heart, Caroline marries layered combinations of guitars, vocals, and beats with string and brass instruments—producing a sound that’s equal parts whimsical and arresting. In live performance, she rounds out this synthesis with choreographed and improvised movements. Caroline draws the name of her moniker from a natural phenomenon described as "the green ray," first observed by Arctic explorer Sir George Back. The green ray is also said to be a philosophical phenomenon—a moment of epiphany where your thoughts, and the thoughts of those around you are perfectly understood—a struggle that plays a clear role throughout Caroline's tracks. "Sir" was changed to "Sur" to imply the Turkish translation of "sur"—"steer"— in hopes the music will "steer back" its listeners to epiphanies of their own.
