Beautifully, chanting, humming vocals hint at tangibility while remaining half-submerged; rhythms are a baby-bouncing jumble of eclectic percussion and twittering electronics. And soaring over the top, achingly gorgeous melodies stripped down to the still-gleaming bone.

Biography

Small Sails is a music and film making collective from Portland, Oregon. The music is a gorgeous post-electronic tribal thing and the films are performed live at their shows using original reel-to-reel footage and dual projectors.
Their new music is different, too: chanting, humming vocals hint at tangibility while remaining half-submerged; rhythms are a baby-bouncing jumble of eclectic percussion and twittering electronics; and achingly gorgeous melodies get stripped down to the still-gleaming bone.

To experience Small Sails' live show is to become immersed in a seemingly unparalleled rhythm and energy. The visual and sonic interplay are hypnotic and their on-stage chemistry and fluidity are nothing short of warm and inviting. Through their unique, multi-faceted coaxing of the senses, they create an environment that commands undivided attention and adoration.

A field of dandelions plowed over, inner-city kids jumping double-dutch in gritty streets, birds and waterfalls, playground vocals, clicky electronics and warm, spacey melodies – that's what Small Sails looks and sounds like.

Small Sails have toured extensively, performing almost 100 shows in 2006.
