USING THE ELEMENTS OF WATER, ELECTRICITY, VIBRATION, AND PULSE, THIS 3-PIECE FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS CREATE AN ETHEREAL PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE OF ELECTRONIC STORMS, ATMOSPHERIC VOICES, AND RHYTHMS THAT UNFOLD AND EXPLODE IN OTHERWORLDLY SCENES. EMOTIONS OF LOVE, HATRED, HAPPINESS, AND JEALOUSY ARE ENORMOUS AND HAVE BEEN PRESENT AS LONG AS HUMANS HAVE. THEY SUPERCEDE TIME, SPACE, AND TECHNOLOGY.
DRAWING HEAVILY FROM THE INFLUENCES OF DAVID LYNCH AND THE METHOD ACTING TECHNIQUES OF STANISLAVSKI; MIGRANT KIDS CREATE MORE THAN JUST INDIVIDUAL, ONE DIMENSIONAL SONGS. THEIR ART FEELS LESS LIKE AN ALBUM AND MORE LIKE A DRUG INDUCED HALLUCINOGENIC EXPERIENCE OF ELECTRONIC SPIRITS AND ATMOSPHERIC GHOSTS. VOCALS ARE BREATHED, NOT SUNG. MELODIES POSE QUESTIONS. RHYTHMS ERUPT OVER VAST SOUNDSCAPES. EVERY ASPECT OF THE GROUP IS A COLLABORATION, FROM THE MUSICAL CONCEPTS TO THE ARTWORK AND PHOTOGRAPHY.

MIGRANT KIDS ARE MIGUEL OJEDA, BRYAN OFLYNN, & JOHN ZAKOOR [+]
