The State Of
The State Of is the product of Steph Taylor's edgy piano/synth playing and Nabedi Osorio's electronic-like live drumming. Their dark pop sensibility is born out of their hometown of Miami, FL. Their songs are a juxtaposition of dark and light, playing music that is melancholy and minor but to a fun and danceable beat. When coupled, they create a dynamic sound larger than what’s expected out of two people.
The Zoo Peculiar
An experimental rock trio based in South Florida, The Zoo Peculiar has carved a unique place for themselves in the American indie scene, combining underground rock vibes with the sounds of circus tent, saloon, and sideshow to create a sound that has been variously described as "circus music from outer space," "dark carnival disco pop," and "I'm not sure what is, but I like it . . . a lot." The Zoo Peculiar is known as much for their music as for their exuberant, vaudevillian live performances, which often incorporate elaborate balloon animals, carnival performers, and playful costumes.
