WPTS Radio and Cool Shoes. Present Crying and Eskimeaux
WPTS Radio and Cool Shoes. are proud to present Crying and eskimeaux at City Grows on April, 3rd!
Born out of the vibrant SUNY Purchase music scene, Crying is the collaborative music project of guitarist and gameboy programmer Ryan Galloway, singer Elaiza Santos and drummer Nick Corbo. Their debut EP delivers seven high energy hits hewn from a wacky world of snacks and fun. Crying takes a different approach to 8-bit, incorporating elements of lofi indie rock and some classic vibes reminiscent of bands like Rush and Queen. Galloway’s got some ripping leads and Corbo keepz it tight while Santos keeps it real. Catch ’em at yr hometown bodega.
eskimeaux is a four-piece outfit that delivers rock versions of songs from smith’s recording project, whose songs center on exploring down to the bottom of what is really important. The live show is influenced by the delicate folk melodies of Vashti Bunyan, and draws its rock inspiration from East Coast friends such as Krill and Porches. The intricacies of eskimeaux’s melodic structures serve to highlight moments of blossoming insight, while the heavy low end of the project drives the songs forward towards catharsis. Each song draws the audience into a towering, burnt-out cathedral of sound and then promptly tears it down. The flying debris and showering sparks create a determined and effective display of self-awareness and intention. The project’s looping, mirrored song structures act as a rumination on the details and infinitely significant contingencies of smith’s relationships and private thoughts about herself, while shaking, heavy drums and frantic synthesizer phrases combine to produce the emotional devastation and determination central to the project.
