21 years and over
Hailing from the tiny town of Gävle, Sweden, THE DEER TRACKS are a Northern Lights Electronica duo comprised of DAVID LEHNBERG, ELIN LINDFORS and a rotating cast of collaborators. The pair of multi-instrumentalists just released the final installment of The Archer Trilogy, an otherworldly sonic experimentation that mashes organic and natural found sounds with 21st century technology for a kaleidoscopic, propulsively danceable experience. Featuring breathless singing over anxious synth melodies and cascading string arrangements, THE DEER TRACKS are known to break their songs in half with sudden, hard-edged guitar riffs, sweeping bass lines and soaring choruses that reach for the rafters. Local electronica duo GLASS LUX was recently named a top Chicago band "that will knock your socks off" by Refinery29, and their slick dance-and-synth-heavy sound showcases the duo's catchy production and haunting vocals. Opening tonight’s show is Chicago’s own LOVE AND RADIATION, an outfit that blends distorted guitars, synth lines and programmed drums into dance-influenced spirit pop. Weaving narratives of transition and transformation with haunting vocals and dark, lyrical imagery, L & R’s debut record is slated for an April 2013 release.
