The Leafies You Gave Me: Leafies are a 10-piece theatrical avant-garde music ensemble from Holyoke, MA that combines lush harmonies and orchestration with a do-it-yourself spirit. They invite you into their own surreal world where they use minimalist props to tell a dream-like story with fragmented narratives. From pop to metal, punk to doo-wop, and jazz to avant-garde experiments, Leafies creates a musical collage that captivates audiences young and old through personal stories and fantastical vignettes.
‘The Leafies have been described as “Broadway on Acid,” which is apt but a bit reductive considering their performances are meticulously planned, intentional in their thematic explorations, and, musically, very tight.’ -‘Off, Off, Off Broadway”, John Arvanitis, Take Magazine
Carinae: Carinae is an unstable star in the constellation that is the Western Massachusetts music scene. Three part vocal harmonies orbit around patchwork guitar and keyboard textures laced with driving rhythms. Lyrics that bring you home and stretch you out. Star gazing in an open field.
“An homage to a distant star, far brighter than our own Sun, Massachusetts natives Carinae produce their own brand of psych-rock as individual and unique as their name…a strong focus on vocals and lyrical content, an element overlooked by many of their colleagues, without losing their laid-back grooves.” -Brian Varneke, The Deli Magazine
