The Seattle trip-hop duo emerged last year with their dark and vibey debut MOSCA EP. The murky atmosphere is all consuming, heightened by Irene Fan’s haunting vocals coming in and out of the ghostly beats. “Carrion” also features lyrics contributed by South African author Ian S. Thomas, adding to the heady and immersive experience.

This week on Locals Only I was joined by a newer Seattle band that I have been very excited to meet. Local band MYXA (Mu-ha) came by the studio to share about themselves and play a live song for us. A while band MYXA sent me an email with their debut EP Mosca. I loved it instantly and wanted to get these two on the show right away. They shared the story of how they met just earlier this year at a jam session with coworkers. They quickly formed a band and found themselves recording music together. The early product is one of my favorite releases of 2019
This debut release from local Triphop duo MYXA is the sort of thing that keeps me wanting to check my email every day. I had never heard of this band before and after hearing their album Mosca I am completely reimagining the soundtrack for the film Drive. These two teamed up with South African author Ian S. Thomas to create something very exciting. This project is one the most pleasant surprises of the year for me and you are going to be hearing plenty of their stuff on Local Only moving forward.
