Felt & Fur | McAllen, TX

  • Yerberia Cultura 613 South 17th Street McAllen, TX, 78501 United States (map)

North Texas synth-pop trio Felt & Fur will close out BRIDGES NOT WALLS FEST in McAllen with dark danceable energy and eurythmic emotional charge. Alizsha Pennington's pleading lyrics paired with her dramatic guitar riffs offer a solemn counter to the pulsing keyboard melodies, pounding percussion and warm analogue synths of Randall Minick and Jarrod Estes to collectively form the perfect symbiosis of chaos and ritual. In November 2018, Felt & Fur's sophomore album Held made its debut release on Triptych Records and was quickly heralded as 2018 "Album of the Year" in the local press. The album's single, "Pulling a Thread" made "Song of the Day" in Central Track, Dallas' premier culture guide and "Music Video of the Day" in White Light White Heat. Driven by organic spacious keyboards, reverb-laden static, and hissing drones that grow to literally charge the air, Held features hypnotic, driving rhythms, spatial chord progressions and deep, repetitive, trance-inducing scapes of sound. Layered with rich tones, dynamic volume and enormous emotional range, Pennington's agonizing and dramatic vocals serve as guide through the labyrinth of penetrating, enduring synth pulsations generated by Minick and Estes.

Austin producer Jenna Herrington is performing her electronic project Bragglights with a cocktail of sound inspired by Deep House, Industrial & Techno.
