When: Tue., Aug. 13, 8 p.m. 2019
Minnesota-based indie band Vansire make dreamy, groove-centric music. Stylistically, the pair of former Oberlin College students create a vibe similar to the blissed-out, hypnagogic sounds of early 2010s chillwave. Pulling from a variety of influences, the band creates a latticework of trip-hop-inspired rhythms, dark bass lines, flickering synths and aloof vocals. Its 2018 album, Angel Youth, features a cavalcade of up-and-coming guest stars, including Miami-based rapper Chester Wilson and indie-pop maverick Paul Cherry. Catch Vansire on Tuesday, August 13, at Club Metronome in Burlington. Kainalu adds support.
