R O N ii A is a trio.
Nona Marie Invie (Dark Dark Dark, Anonymous Choir)
Mark McGee ( Marijuana Deathsquads, To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie) Fletcher Barnhill (Fugitive, Joint Custody)
Together, they create a world that is both gorgeous and intense, music that is chillingly cutting and beautifully arresting at once.
For several years, Nona Marie Invie toured and recorded with her American folk band Dark Dark Dark, being praised for her “flexible, penetrating voice, shedding both light and shadow on the meaning of her lyrics” (NPR).
Nona’s d issonant, shadowy presence is enriched and fortified by McGee’s production and Barnhill’s instrumentation. Their dual effort creates a brooding, menacing sound, constructing a darkness within which both comfort and fear can be found.
RONiiA is electronic music stripped of its gloss, a smoky dust storm full of nostalgia, uncertainty and resigned rebellion that yearns for something lighter in a brutal world.
Howardian is a New York City based art rock group fronted by Ian Vanek (Japanther) Howardian is thick with technical poly rhythms, sticky piano driven melodies and sly lyrics. The resulting Hip-Hop informed pop rock songs are intended to get crowds moving and butts shaking.
Howardian\’s tracks feature fuzzy, distorted walls of sound and plenty of samples, all with a scuzzy garage-rock vibe.
