The Bay Area’s beloved Noise Pop will be presenting special poolside performances by indie musicians, Exray’s and Future Twin, to close out the fair.
Jon Bernson and Michael Falsetto-Mapp are the duo behind Exray’s murky electro-pop. Even if you’ve never heard of them you might have already heard an Exray’s track or two. “Hesitation” was featured in The Social Network, and the band has performed with Toro Y Moi, tUnE-yArDs, Cloud Nothings and Pictureplane. Their music manages to straddle a line somewhere between low-fi and futuristic. A handful of music videos they’ve produced also explore these themes.
Future Twin was brought together by the all girl moped gang The Lockits. They became fast friends and were soon waxing synth songs, huffing gasoline and makeing shred tents (the ‘e’ stands for everyone.) Since then situations have transpired, people were motivated to get up or get out, landslides shifted the conceptual mindscape…but adaptive by design this pirate ship just keeps sailing. We design our lives towards who we want to be, becoming our own future twin.
