Shana Falana – “the most entrancing modern psychedelic pop now being made” – Chronogram
Sandy – “light when there is too much darkness, dark when the light is blinding…”
Shana Falana is an experimental dream-pop band emerging from New York’s vast shoegaze scene. Combining live-looping of reverb-drenched vocals and guitar with drums, pre-recorded backing tracks , and stunning visual projections, Shana’s live experience has often been described as transcendental. Praised as “the most entrancing modern psychedelic pop now being made” by Chronogram (NY).
“a tranquil, fluid landscape. The placid vocals navigate with ease throughout the stacked, elongated rhythms and keyboards, making for a sexy, chill vibe reminiscent of The xx and Poliça. Sandy’s tracks are inundated with crisp, clean melodies and intelligent restraint, and we cannot wait to see what this new band has up their cool kid sleeves next.” – The Wild Honey Pie
