Stanlaey + My Octopus Mind + Alternative Milks

— Dareshack
Stanlaey's hyper melodic, classically written folk prog comes to Dareshack with Alternative Milks and My Octopus Mind in tow.
price: Tickets Below

Information:

Arranger and composer Bethany Stenning inhabits an intriguing composite of tastes. At once delicate in vocal delivery, but forceful in their precise and weaving guitar technique, their control comes from their mastery of both balance and chaos.

Joined by a cohort of local musicians with their collective fingers in a veritable cornucopia of pies, Stenning’s music springs to life as Stanlaey, a musical tapestry that deftly combines the angular, leapfrogging song structures of math-leaning dynamics with a grounded, earthy folk sensibility, with pointed, sweet, borderline-juvenile vocal delivery languishing in a cryptic lyricism floating over the top.

Expect to have your expectations challenged as we witness the mercurial music of a keen, creative mind, brought to life by some of the finest heads from Bristol’s musical community.

Opening the evening, we welcome Alternative Milks, who’s firmly tongue in cheek, spiky guitar interplay and locked in, nigh-on punishing alt grooves promise to keep our heads nodding gleefully along with frontman Mike Jordan’s preening, keenly observed lyricism.

For main support, we welcome My Octopus Mind, who, whilst masquerading cheekily as a traditional power trio dynamic, continue to gleefully subvert expectations by experimenting with the push-pull of linear song structure and non-linear acoustic and electric textures. A focused, heady, mind-boggling genre clash of math rock, prog, and jazz instrumentation with devilish results.

Ages 18+
