Tucson, Arizona based experimental pop outfit Emby Alexander tours extensively and playing festivals throughout North America. The band has garnered international recognition, opening for The Dodos on their 10-year anniversary tour of Visiter, and sharing bills with Weyes Blood, Courtney Marie Andrews, Miniature Tigers, Chicano Batman and more.
The band beckons with colorful imagery and spirited coos, neighboring twinkling piano samples, phantasmagoric drum fills and thrashing guitar melodies.
Emby Alexander, who have been likened to The Beach Boys, Van Dyke Parks, Broken Social Scene, The Smiths, Vampire Weekend, and David Bowie, have worked with various artists, including painter Eric Kasper and director Trevvor Riley to combine the visual with the sonic.
‘Up in the Air’ is fun, effervescent, and never short in compliments for the future. It is a mystery, how the world will turn out, but we sure can dance our way there.
One way is with Emby, indeed.
