Creaky Brooklyn band Kotorino plays darkly elegant, trippy, gypsy-flavored “parlor rock” with carnivalesque touches. Vocal harmonies are haunting and lyrics flirt with adventure, unease and triumph.
“Kotorino has one of the most unique and unusual sounds of any band, ever. Even in a music scene saturated with “chamber-pop” bands and odd instrumentation, Kotorino stands out with its use of all variety of winds, strings, and other musical gadgetry. The music itself is omnivorous in its source material, quite pretty, and downright haunting.” -WNYC
Sweet Soubrette's dark, lush songs explore troubled romance, the inner lives of bad women, works of literature, and the mysteries of existence, featuring the songwriting, vocals and ukulele of award-winning Brooklyn singer/songwriter Ellia Bisker and a talented band of musical collaborators.
"Sweet Soubrette’s style comes with a pinch of Regina Spektor quirk and a spoonful of old-timey burlesque." –Time Out New York
“Sweet Soubrette continues to impress...smart songwriting and wonderfully dark sense of humor.” –Largehearted Boy
