Natural Twenty with Selci

Local fave 7-piece Natural Twenty is teamin’ up with electro-pop act Selci.

About Natural Twenty:
Natural Twenty is a local Calgary 7-piece band with a focus on groovy beats, hooky melodies, virtuous technique, and sultry vocals. Fred, Jay, and Rob have been playing music for the better part of a decade, playing in different outfits and genres. With what started as a blues rock project, evolved beyond that after meeting Rauth and Keath. Being music majors and teachers, they brought a wealth of knowledge that would only push the group further. Natural Twenty was finally complete in 2016 when Anita and Ambur joined the group, balancing the energy and offering their exquisitely, sultry, and powerful voices. That being said, we’re goofy, nerdy, outgoing, introverted, inclusive but most importantly, fun! Individually, we call ourselves outliers, black sheep, or weird – together we’re a Natural Twenty.

With the finalized lineup, they have since cultivated a sound that will have people dancing and grooving behind lyrical candor that resonates introspection and camaraderie. Their music not only has clear influence from such contemporary acts like BADBADNOTGOOD, Hiatus Kaiyote, The Internet, and generally, the brainfeeder scene but also decades of classic rock, blues, and jazz. The name is maybe obscure, but Natural Twenty is a D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) term. D&D is a live role-playing game normally played with as little as a pencil, pen, and dice! One particular dice has twenty sides and is meant to determine a myriad of different things. As you can infer, Natural Twenty is a dice roll landing on twenty, which is the best possible outcome, the luckiest roll, the relief, the confidence – Natural Twenty.

About Selci
Electro-R&B singer-soundscaper Selci uses ambience and rhythm to compose sounds that exist on the fringes of pop music. On her debut EP Effervescence, the Calgary-by-way-of-Winnipeg artist bridges the seductive, iconoclastic electronics of FKA twigs, the bedroom R&B of Jessy Lanza, and the minimalist-pop of James Blake to shape her sonic vision. The EP features mixing from sound guru Sylvia Massy (Prince, Kate Bush), mastering via Matt Colton (Blood Orange, James Blake), and an array of rare and vintage instruments and equipment from the National Music Centre in Calgary.

Over the past year, Selci has played over 50 shows across Canada, sharing bills with Neon Indian and Ryan Hemsworth, including festival slots at Canadian Music Week, Sled Island Music & Arts Festival and more. Her Effervescence Tour will cross Canada in October of 2019.
