Oliver Ignatius

Oliver Ignatius shares video for "Light and Dark"

In his debut single "Light and Dark," Oliver Ignatius taps into an unlikely but interesting combination of sounds: crunchy guitar solos, soaring synths, a blasting horn section, and dreamy laid-back, Queen-esque vocals. We can't tell you why it works, exactly, but it does. Perhaps it's Ignatius' immaculate grasp of melody and placement of harmonies throughout that weaves all of these elements together into a funky, groovin', garage-y track. The founder and spiritual leader of Bushwick's DIY studio/label Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen sure is onto something- and it definitely does feel like something a little higher. Check out the track's video, streaming below. - Geena Kloeppel


Oliver Ignatius, of MCFK, drops first solo single "Light & Dark"

Hysterics, GhostPal, the MCFK Emergency Management Squad; Brooklyn-bred Oliver Ignatius has made music under all of these names, but never on his own. That is, until his new single “Light and Dark” (streaming below) dropped on the Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen Soundcloud. The single is a big step away from his previous work (like the moody indie rock of Hysterics and the funk-twinged, experimental psychedelia of GhostPal.) It takes a soft and soulful turn, relying on mesmerizing harmonies and a simple, repetitive melody. He will be playing a solo live show at Pianos on August 12th. - Lilly Milman
