DECEMBER 3 | MERCURY LOUNGE | NEW YORK
Cinematic alternative pop duo Manicanparty were born with ideas of female empowerment and the importance of unity. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, by way of Minnesota, Jess (vocals) and Pat (production) create orchestral and terrestrial atmospheric compositions about togetherness (“Achilles”) and viewing the world from outside perspectives and cultural differences (“Warpaint”). Expanding on EP 1’s exploration of their musical identity, The District is guided by their internal struggles while taking the discovery of their musical identity and externalizing it of their personal experiences to make expressive, uplifting music, bringing together the best of classic and modern sounds. They draw on the same aural palette as many electro-pop artists today, but their classic sense of song craft, soaring vocals, and infectious rhythms set them apart.
