GROUP RHODA – synth / USA / live
Sirius&Darktunes – new romantic synthwave / host djs
Group Rhoda is the recording and performing moniker of San Francisco resident Mara Barenbaum. What began with a desire to learn the machinations of pop music and the environment in which it is produced, has culminated in Group Rhoda.
With grounding in the minimal and the post-industrial landscape, Group Rhoda take classic west coast psychedelia, Suicide?s mechanical simplicity, and the industrial rhythms of Throbbing Gristle through surprising detours. Tropical rhythms, dubbed-out bass, hypnotic Wurlitzer flourishes and, Barrenbaum?s distinctive, plaintive vocal drench this debut with a technicolour, sun-blanched imagination.
