Old City / Killii Killii / Doctor Girlfriend

With the dark and dirty elements of punk and grunge, Old City builds a stormy rock landscape that hits with a visceral impact. Killii Killii leans on ominous prog-rock to create an atmospheric sound that bounces all over the place in a captivating and strange way. Doctor Girlfriend creates intense dream-pop that bends that genre, stretching into anything from punk’s urgency to electro-pop’s direct appeal, ending up with this Talking Heads-like juxtaposition where the comfort of the familiar meets a whirlwind of unpredictability.
