Mercury Rev
Since forming in 1989, Mercury Rev has made a career out of boldly exploring the fringes of artistic perception, channeling colors and sounds and visions that always seem just beyond our mortal reach. The Guardian hailed the group as “a rarity in indie rock: a band who have
continually evolved their sound, pushing at the boundaries of what rock music actually means over 25 years, borrowing from jazz, funk, doo-wop, techno, folk and more along the way,” while Rolling Stone praised their “majestic chaos,” and the BBC lauded their “shimmering psychedelic pop, immersive indie-rock, [and] spectacularly engrossing passages of sumptuous instrumentation.” The band’s 1991 debut, ‘Yerself Is Steam,’ landed on Pitchfork’s rundown of the Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time, and their 1998 breakthrough, ‘Deserter’s Songs,’ was named NME’s Album of the Year upon its release. Major festival and television performances around the world solidified their status as that rare group capable of straddling the line between mainstream appeal and progressive musical and technological experimentation, but the band’s journey was also a tumultuous one, full of lineup changes, setbacks, and heartbreak.
Fronting NIIGHTS is visual artist & singer-songwriter Jenna Fournier, a Las Vegas-to-Cleveland transplant who began working with songwriter and innovative guitarist/pedal-tweaker Frankie Maraldo in 2010. The two are now joined by Jeremy Dodge on drums and bassist Alex Wright, who anchor and underline the sonic chaos.NIIGHTS released their first EP, A Tangle of Arms, in 2010, followed by their debut album Whisper (recorded by Jim Stewart) in 2013, which landed them a deal with 2670 Records in Japan. After two international tours, NIIGHTS signed with Tragic Hero Records and re-mixed Whisper with legendary producer Jim Wirt for a re-release in 2015.Fournier soon returned to Japan with an exclusive solo EP and tour in 2017, while simultaneously working on a new NIIGHTS album with Maraldo and Wirt. Hellebores finally hit the shelves in February of 2019, after nearly four years of obsessing over details, writing and experimenting in-studio, and fitting the new pieces of a live performing band together. The latest LP echoes the pop sensibility and ethereal ambience of Whisper, but with a darker evolution that explores new metallic territories for the band. The record quickly garnered attention from national press and climbed immediately to Disc One in Pop-Rock in Tower Records all over Japan.NIIGHTS followed up their sophomore release with a US tour alongside one of bedroom-pops cult-favorite artists, Elvis Depressedly, and a fourth International tour to Japan in 2019. NIIGHTS parted with Tragic Hero Records in 2020 and is currently writing and recording with plans for both a full studio album release from the band and a self-recorded and produced solo album from Fournier.
Kramies is an American Songwriter, creator of dreamy folklore, crossing the boundaries between eerie sceneries and fairytale laden myths.
