BIONICA: poised at the intersection of man and machine and representing the inborn need to retain one’s humanity therein. With influences ranging from punk rock and electronica to modern jazz and contemporary classical music, Bionica has been said to “…defy stale genres and produce fresh, thoughtful music” (Where Y’at Magazine). Rich harmonic structures, soaring melodies carried by dual lead vocalists, and high-powered drum beats give the group a robust, strikingly original sound that breaks the musical mold. Mixing electronic and acoustic sounds and incorporating multiple keyboards and vibraphone, their sound lends itself to being futuristic and multilayered, blending the ethereal with the earthy. Their lyrics speak to a strong socio-political introspect in both the music and members, evoking a consciousness that challenges the status quo.
Bionica recently released the Future Settlers LP! For more details, click here.
