Particle Kid, feat. Micah Nelson (son of Willie Nelson, member of Neil Young‘s band) + HEKLA – Berlin doom pop (swelling synth sounds, dramatic rythms and wavy guitar washes) LIVE!
Particle Kid (experimental folk rock | US)
Particle Kid is the experimental musical identity of Los Angeles-based musician and visual artist J. Micah Nelson. As Particle Kid, Micah Nelson has created a multi-dimensional musical universe all his own, crafted with immense ambition, inventive production techniques, and strikingly emotive song craft. Nelson achieves the near impossible by sounding both familiar and oddly modern, with the spirits of future folk, low rider funk, riff rock, power pop, lysergic Americana, flower punk, and progressive jazz fusion all somehow woven together with deep-rooted melodies, unique improvisational elements, and remarkably intricate arrangements.
HEKLA (doom pop | Berlin)
Fronted by two Swedish cousins, HEKLA is a quartet stemming from Berlin’s musical melting pot. Inspired by everything from Scandinavian folk music to 80s synthwave adventures, they bring you along for a ride into the abandoned beach towns and forgotten volcanoes of their minds.
In both music and lyrics, grandiose dreams face their constant companion, destruction. Never shying away from the drama, HEKLA sing about the obsession and madness in us all.
HEKLA released their self-titled debut album in 2017. Their new EP, Boulevards, is out in June 2018.
NEW EP TO BE RELEASED JUNE 15TH:
inspired by film noir’s betrayal + love. when the blinds stay low, and the outside world is shut out. riding cars at night and asking: ”you wouldn’t let me go, would you?”
