Crybaby presents Uncanny Valley, Bog Bodies, Purlicue and Postnamers
Our new pals have a quadruple bill of dark-pop and post-punk, courtesy of UNCANNY VALLEY, Bog Bodies, POSTNAMERS and Purlicue.
About UNCANNY VALLEY:
Members of Aiwass, Crims & Flow and Ultra Gash team up for post-punk that snarls and gyrates in equal measure. With badass synth and bass lines behind her, Alicia Palmar is a menacing presence that still invites you to have fun.
Terrifying minimalist industrial gutter punks Bog Bodies produce the sound of several thousand souls celebrating their demise in a devastating arcade tragedy. Warped synthesizers and chaotic drum machines elevate frantic guitar lines and the shrill, modulated screams of pure ecstasy.
POSTNAMERS is an oft-changing group of musicians centred around Matthew A. Wilkinson. They make a haunted, scuzzy brand of dark pop that lingers in your psyche long after you’ve heard it. Their music feels like something half-remembered yet strangely alien, with performance motifs sourced from cultural iconography.
Quirky punk songs bursting with wacky riffs and three-part vocals.
