Missing Maps / Once & Future Kings
Date: Saturday, January 5, 2013 Show Starts: 9:00 pm
Missing Maps from Raleigh, NC play an airy mix of melodic cloud rock. Between the classically inspired piano melodies, soft spoken vocals and chillwave guitar, Missing Maps swoon the ear of the most savage beast. McKenna Oakes, formerly of Ghost Cats of the South and Ponchos From Peru, leads the band with lyrics of swaddled memories and over-pondered expressions. Eric Lee, of Gods of Harvest, Double Jinx, and Swashbuckler, plays a warm bass, a river of deep tone, moving the musical boat. Thomas Matera's guitar sways the line between chillwave shoegaze and neo-beach. Todd Jones, on drums keeps the river on course for a smooth sea of drums. Together, Missing Maps takes you on a journey down a memory river filled with melodic rapids, inspiring melodies and a danceable nostalgia.
Once & Future Kings
Once and Future Kings make music that ranges ethereal indie rock to surrealistic pop. The five-piece creates an amalgam of familiar pop structures with unfamiliar glue. At the heart of Jess Edison's songwriting is a deference to capturing moments of intense meaning. Enterline plays nuanced guitar, while new addition and cellist Kaitlin Grady adds emotional grit. At the core of OFK's dynamism, Matt Austin's precise drums and Matt Robinson's punchy bass have been known to move feet.
