It’s time to turn up the volume. Join Mute Swan and Kryge in making some noise on the Club Congress stage. In partnership with our friends over at Hotel Congress, Arizona Arts Live is proud to present two band’s who balance musicianship and roaring power in equal parts.
Four-piece, Mute Swan blends 90’s shoegaze and dreampop with neo-psychedelic rock. Their recording process employs lo-fi gear including cassette tape recorders and their onstage visuals similarly feature VHS aesthetics and CCTV monitors. They formed in 2014 out of Tucson’s tight-knit music scene and have since released two EPs, an LP, and a handful of singles and videos. Despite being self-produced and self-promoted they’ve drawn the attention of the Fader, Post-punk.com, Impose, and others. They’ve opened for the Psychedelic Furs, Modern English, Wild Nothing, Kikagaku Moyo, No Joy, Wand, and have toured the continental US extensively. Members include Mike Barnett (guitar, vocals), Prabjit Virdee (bass, vocals), Thom Sloane (guitar), and Gilbert Flores (drums).
Kryge is an experimental music project out of Tucson, Arizona.
