Kedr Livanskiy / GGOOLLDD
Hailing from Milwaukee, our northern neighbors in GGOOLLDD return after their debut Bottle performance back here in December. Between wispy melodies and a lethargic atmosphere that builds to a gracious sway, there's a little something for everyone in GGOOLLDD's sound. GGOOLLDD isn’t like other bands. They formed on whim, decided to play their first show mostly as an excuse to host a killer party, and they eschew the traditional gotta-get-a-record-deal game in favor of playing a lot of shows and releasing their own material. That sense of whimsy blended with resolute autonomy is all part of the signature GGOOLLDD aesthetic. Secrets, their new album, is a soaring collection of bangers that conjures wind-in-your-hair glittery romanticism.
Moscow's KEDR LIVANSKIY (real name Yana Kedrina) confesses "Synthesizers help me maximally feel the present moment." Livanskiy was born into a shifting and critical time for Russia. She's escaped reality repeatedly in her explorations into the imagery and ideas of romanticism, mythical and fairytale themes which visibly bleed throughout her work and especially on her debut full-length Ariadna.
