Hypercolor - Magda (preview)
Hypercolor has released a four-song preview EP. Led by Alexandra Spalding (Austin Thomas, The Razorektors) on 12-string guitar, banjo, and vocals, the band plays an assortment of experimental folk, lush pop moments, and garage rock. Spalding’s vocals are reminiscent of The Cowboy Junkies or chilled-out Joan Jett. The band also features Adrian Olsen (Montrose Recording, Tarrant), Keith Paul (bass, Guise, Dumb Waiter, Dirty Banners), Hugo Haggie and Cre Moore (drums, Lightfields, Dirty Banners).
Check out “Told You Once” for Southern Culture on the Skids-style attitude, distorted, sultry female vocals, and dissonant guitars. “Sparrow” finishes off the album on a sullen, whispered note. This band truly has versatility. We look forward to hearing the band hone their sound.
Come out to Hypercolor on Sunday, 5/19 @ Gallery 5 with RVA’s Silversmiths and Brooklyn’s Annie & the Beekeepers (Americana).
