Dream-Pop from Bushwick, NY: Sparxx

Dream-Pop from Bushwick, NY: Sparxx

Fronted by the glitteringly motivated force that is Heather Sparx, Bushwick based band Sparxx in 2012 released 4 Bandcamp singles of exquisitely crafted, uptempo dream-synth-pop. The band will be shooting a video for their new song "Mod" (streaming below), and if you want to be in it you can show up at The Lab at 224 Wyckoff Avenue on 12.20, the show will be taped. The song undulates with synth washes and a straight foward drum pattern before the guitars slowly emerge. Heather's voice and lyrics create a seductive combination that at times hearkens back to Lene Lovich and "Lucky Number" on the verses. It's all reverberated guitar chords and cathedral hall voices on the chorus however, placing the sound closer to prime era Siouxsie Sioux - the fact that Heather's appearances stradles the line somewhere between Siouxsie and Madonna only adds to the appeal. Also performing will be NYC emerging bands Hippy, Slonk Donkerson and Haybaby. - Dave Cromwell
