The Spider Ferns
Kelly Fleek-Bass/Vocals/Piano/Wave Drum
-from Seattle-Alger WA
-"We make music late at night in a converted barn at the base of a small mountain."
The Spider Ferns create dark, sophisticated electronic pop with heavy downtempo beats and striking, seductive vocals. Their latest release 'Safety' is an intoxicating opium dream —a powerful and entrancing call to ponder the human condition, pulling you into a universe where time and presence dissolve into transcendent beauty. Laden with swirling guitars, driving beats and luminous vocals, The Spider Ferns sound recalls the denizens of dark-pop Portishead and Massive Attack, interlaced with post-punk pulses reminiscent of Siouxie And The Banshees and the modern, synth-driven stylings of The XX and Phantogram. "Their music combines a slick, trip-hop nostalgia with a dreamy Northwest haze; —like if Portishead lived deep in the forests of Washington State." -Decoder Magazine.
Known for their spellbinding performances, the band combine large scale, illuminated textile installations and mind altering visuals into their shows, masterfully transporting their audiences and solidifying the band as both an aural and visual powerhouse.
The pair have been referred to as 'one of the most mesmerizing duos in the history of Seattle Rock.’ -Nadamucho.com. Their music fuses a rich tapestry of heady lyricism, washing over a backdrop of dark beats and carefully crafted, atmospheric landscapes. Alex Faulkner, The Drainage / Faulkner Review U.K. describes their sound as having an “...other-worldly quality that is strikingly original in its blending of genres —the overall effect is hypnotic and, like any good work of art, it creates it’s own world and takes you inside it.” Dave Segal of The Stranger has said of the band, “The Spider Ferns —record gleaming, sensual songs that split the difference between trip-hop and dreamy pop… “Soon Enough” features Kelly’s silky, languid vocals hovering over the the pair’s artfully minimalist compositions that deploy keyboards, guitar and bass. It’s a stripped-down urban sound, created in the boonies, designed to give you the shivers.” Tony Kay, journalist for City Arts Magazine says of their most recent EP “Safety” —“Kelly Fleeks’ lovely trill of a voice- think Kate Bush at the cusp of innocence lost- provides the anchor for The Spider Ferns’ fluidly grooving, sensual electronic pop.”

-Producer Stephen Tucker (Tucker) and vocalist Sierra Totten made pop duo Pretty, Handsome winter of 2015. The result is catchy, danceable beats mixed with powerful, emotive vocals. The pair are best friends which is apparent when you see their effortless chemistry during their very energetic live shows. Having very different musical backrounds, the two have created a unique style that they like to think appeals to a wide range of people and tastes.
