BAILEN New York, NY https://bailen.bandcamp.com/
BAILEN’s gorgeous harmonies, striking arrangements and evocative songwriting springs from a very deep well. Growing up in NYC, the siblings, David, Daniel (twins!) and Julia Bailen were raised by their professional orchestral musician parents, and the young trio immersed themselves in a record collection that included Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Carole King and The Band. Their amazing three-part harmonies have been compared to The Staves and Fleet Foxes, however, on their debut album, Thrilled To Be Here, BAILEN have created something all their own. Produced by GRAMMY-Award winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, Manchester Orchestra, The War on Drugs), BAILEN’s shiny gleam and meticulous songcraft combine with the group’s unusual self-awareness, musicality and bite. Named one of Sofar Sounds’ Artists to Watch in 2018, BAILEN has toured or collaborated with The Lone Bellow, Amos Lee and Joseph, among many others. Modern, melodic and soulful, BAILEN is twisting pop music in new directions, an undeniable, and welcome new arrival.
THE INFINITE DAISY CHAINS Washington, DC https://theinfinitedaisychains.bandcamp.com/
From meeting at a rehearsal in a dimly lit garage to tying the knot five years later in marriage, Ian Dandridge and Kristina Westernik-Dandridge now set off to spread a much-needed message of hope. Inspired by their honeymoon experience in the Californian desert, these DC-metropolitan based artists decided to combine their love for creating and performing music, forming what they now refer to as 'The Infinite Daisy Chains'. The marriage secured their commitment to each other, and that emotion spills over into the duo's creative process. With a seemingly ‘infinite’ sonic palette that sees them generate ideas from synthesizers, drum machines and an array of live instrumentation, their sound fuses Bedroom Pop and Downtempo in a way that is unique to them. Kristina specializes in the violin, vocals, and Ableton push, whilst Ian is the guitarist of the duo. As well years of experience in playing synthesizers and drum machines, they have produced and sound designed for clients such as splice.com, a leading music production platform for millions of creatives. Collectively, they want nothing more than for their reverb-drenched productions to serve as a salute to the music that brought the two of them together. They just released their latest EP, 'Between You and Me' on October 22nd, 2021.
