Sister Crayon

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Something small and quiet at first, the Sacramento, CA based Sister Crayon began with vocalist Terra Lopez playing classical guitar and pre-programmed beats on a loop pedal to attentive house party crowds in 2007. With the addition of members Dani Fernandez, Jeffrey LaTour, and Nicholas Suhr in 2009, Sister Crayon emerged seamlessly melding haunting balladry, rich analog textures, and a rhythmic prowess informed by trip-hop and krautrock. Despite the music's dark, melancholy nature, there's a sweetness and charisma about Lopez that immediately strikes a chord with audiences. Live, the four-piece uses a combination of samplers, guitar, synths, and live percussion to lay down a steady foundation as Lopez builds and breaks down the songs, alternating between a hip-hop inflected cadence and a spectral croon. In the past year, Sister Crayon has created quite a stir with their inspiring performances playing alongside folks like Baths, School of Seven Bells, Little Dragon, Busdriver, Warpaint (who they put a split 7-inch out with), among many others in their brief existence as a band. Their forthcoming debut full-length "Bellow" is full of juxtapositions that inexplicably work well together: woeful yet triumphant, expanse but also intimate. Their debut album, "Bellow" will be released on Manimal Vinyl Records Feb.22nd, 2011.
