Behold this dynamic duo to keep your ears out for, combining a beautiful sound with just the right tinge of something slightly dark. Of course your Austin Music Minute maven digs this.
Robin Alice (that’s a duo, not a person) began as a meeting of musical minds on a movie set. Songwriter and actress Kelley Jakle and Jeff Hortillosa (Whiskey Shivers) crossed paths during the filming of Pitch Perfect 3 – and technically where Jakle and Horti played their first songs together. They continued their collaboration via email, and reunited in Austin to get their ideas recorded. With contrasting backgrounds of pop/rock and bluegrass/Americana, respectively, the two artists forged a common thread of melody and harmonies.
Robin Alice celebrates the release of their debut EP, Here and There, with a show tonight at Radio Coffee & Beer, 4204 Manchaca. The magnificent Lex Land’s project of funereal folk-core (your elder-goth AMM host is ECSTATIC), One Big Dark Room, starts out the night.
Say it with me: One. Big. Dark. Room. The music starts at 8 p.m. Recommended.
