Live Concert Photography: Strange Names with NOIA at Baby’s All Right 2/24/18
Over the past couple of years, I’ve written a bit about the Minneapolis, MN-born, New York-based trio Strange Names, whose highly anticipated album Data was released by Frenchkiss Records last month, and as you may recall from album singles like “Into Me,” and “UFO,” the trio specializes in slickly produced, breezy and downright funky, 80s-inspired synth pop that at points bring to mind Nu Shooz’s “I Can’t Wait,” Cherelle’s “Saturday Love” and “I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On,” but with a post modern angst.
Late last month, the now New York-based trio headlined an album release show at a packed Baby’s All Right with the Barcelona, Spain-born, New York-based singer/songwriter, electronic music artist and producer NOIA. Check out photos from the show below.
Gisela Fulla-Silvestre is a Barcelona, Spain-born, New York-based singer/songwriter, electronic music artist and producer, who earned a degree in film scoring and sound design from Berklee College of Music and upon graduation relocated to New York. And as the story goes, during the day, Silvestre would compose music for film and at night, she produced contemplative, lonely and deeply idiosyncratic synth pop with her solo recording project NOIA, which received attention with the 2016 release of her debut EP.
