VTP PRESENTS KUINKA Shiny Little Corners Tour
Fri, Nov 12 at 9pm
"Kuinka crafts songs that are engaging and original with a proper amount of established canon and innovation. Stories are laced through the lyrics, there are celebrations as well as lamentations—there is synth and cello! It is such a wonderful thing to hear a sound you've adored for so long ameliorated like this, with nothing missing, only new possibilities added to the mix." -Paste Music & Daytrotter
"Seraphic vocals bookended by ukulele, cello, and heavy percussion will leave you feeling giddy and glad to be alive." -The Stranger
Strange Hotels is a duo founded by Ben Braden and Nick Sadler in Portland, OR in early 2018. They are quickly turning heads up and down the West Coast with their explosive live shows and compelling early recordings. Recording and producing music solely on iPads, using a slightly ramshackle process involving several apps working in concert, they found time in air-bnb’s and apartment studios on the road to create their first release, Mixtape. The result is a mix of inspired, off the cuff tones and well produced and precise Pop. Their music can be described as a wide-ranging project that includes flavors of Dance, RnB, Vintage Pop and Indie Rock.
