DARK EXPERIMENTAL SYNTH POP

Biography

If dreams had soundtracks, Synthcakes haunting, infectious tunes would surely lay down the melodies to a thousand strange fantasies, tickling the brain with musical fingers and provoking neuron storms reminiscent of Ray Bradbury and his finest sci-fi and fantasy writing. Indeed Something wicked this way comeshither and thither, crashing, banging, shrieking, and enchantingwhen Synthcake takes the stage. Featuring synthesizers, accordion, trumpet, glockenspiel and drums, Synthcakes creepy dance ballads weave a lush and delicious spell, calling, come one, come all: welcome to the electronic carnival.

Described as a cross between Portishead and Tom Waits, Synthcake is fronted by songwriter Lana Pitre who plays synth and sings lead vocals. Adam Horn plays keys, bass synth, and additional synths, while Kristy-Lee Audette plays trumpet and glockenspiel, in addition to performing vocal harmonies and sampling, and Lyle Ibister rounds out the quartet on drums. Together, these exciting young musicians embrace audiences with their psychedelic, bohemian, spinning and reeling dervish of sound.
