Storm Door is an experiment in mutual discomfort engineered by Matt Herman (extended range guitar, loops) and May Oskan (synth, apparatus, vocals). Dressed as physics teachers from the 90s, May and Matt create textured soundscapes and melodic noise patterns, polished with sonorous vocals to become the optimist's soundtrack to a dystopian future.
Dagmar is an indie classical, harmony driven female duo recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area from their prairie homeland of Iowa. A new music project with history, Gemma Cohen (vocals, bass) and Miranda Mallard (vocals, keyboard, guitar) are Dagmar's core. They have attained sister status after having sung together for over 8 years in the trio Rock Paper Scissors, and now in Dagmar since 2014.
Gemma and Miranda create original music while rocking their curly manes and singing from the depths of their souls. Harmonies continue to be a staple for this duo along with influences ranging from Phillip Glass to the Fleet Foxes. Dagmar's sound is raw, challenging, a vulnerable vocal driven exposition of Medieval harmonies and uncrumpled diaries.
