Oh hi there! Have you heard about my newest band at radio?? Oh, let me tell you about them!!! I met audiafauna through an artist I worked with at the end of last year, Zoe Boekbinder. They are from Santa Cruz CA, and their music is delightful! They’ve got a ballsy ladysinger and a band full of obviously eclectic influences, coming together with a sound that is often on the folky end of the spectrum but with all kinda biz mixed in – like check it out, there’s one track on here featuring The Album Leaf! WHOA GOOD STUFF!
audiafauna is an emerging band that combines powerful female vocals and earnest lyrics with soaring strings and hints of electronics to create a refreshing sound that is soulful and sublime.
The band formed after its two principals, Kelly (vocals) and Krikor (guitar/keys) met at a thrift store in Santa Cruz, when Kelly was studying literature and Krikor was studying plant ecology (he’s now a professor of plant & environmental science). Together with 3 other full-time members and a revolving cast of additional players, they recorded, produced, and engineered their entire debut full-length album in their own home studio, having raised $9000 on Kickstarter to boost their efforts.
The resulting project is music that spans the genres of soul, folk, pop, and electronica, creating a unique yet nostalgically familiar sound, speaking directly to our human experience.
