MOIRA, the Dayton-based dream-pop trio, has been crafting meticulously layered soundscapes since their formation in 2015. Haunting vocals, hypnotic piano, and intricate rhythms sprinkled with carefully crafted electronic elements build into a whirlwind of sound that is eerily familiar, yet wholly unique.
Blossom Hall is a blend of 90s indie rock and 60s vocal harmony, with accents of psychedelia. The songs revolve around the dual vocals of Nancy Paraskevopoulos (bass) and Phil Cotter (guitar), cemented by precise yet bombastic drumming.
Blossom Hall have been compared to the Pixies, Dirty Projectors and Alabama Shakes. In their first two years as a band, Blossom Hall has opened for Broken Social Scene, Born Ruffians, Frightened Rabbit and R. Ring. The band released an EP, "Parasols" in January of 2018, and are also recording a full-length to release in 2019.
Strobobean began in the summer of 2018, when Katrina Eresman and Jake Langknecht, who met playing together on the local Cincinnati scene (Pop Empire), played a six-song set in a dive bar known for its late-night burritos. When the duo added Brianna Kelly (Soften) on bass later that year, Strobobean was complete, delivering their no-wave and avant-pop influenced songs with a full, heavy sound and three-piece harmonies.
