BomberGirl and the Mechanic

DESCRIPTION

BomberGirl is an exciting hybrid of vocals, dance, theater, hard beats, three-dimensional textures and lush orchestrations. The music draws from a broad spectrum of influences including post-punk new-wave, dance pop, techno, electronica and classical. Live shows have strong elements of stage theatrics, dance, costuming, videography, animation and story-telling. Performances are sculpted as an experience from beginning to end.

REVIEWS

"BomberGirl takes the listener on a journey that bodies a dreamy and exhilarating ride. She tells a story that is sans pretense and full of dimension - always surprising us be it with a corps of gorgeous back-up dancers, haunting warm mezzo-soprano melismas, or a scientific break-down of a sunrise. The mechanic in his suitcase full of luscious harmonies and danceable, never-obvious fancies - breaks the gold-standard in virtuostic violin playing through effects. BomberGirl is charming with out being precocious, intelligent with out being labored with a spontaneous polish. BomberGirl's broken doll like grace, with her singular mix of modern and classical dance skeleton, shows itself without being careful. This is a band that defies description. One must experience it to believe." - J. Corbin

"Space-age and electrifying." - George F.

"I really love it...but I thought to myself these guys are really weird." - BomberGirl's Mother

"New existentialism." - Terence W.
