Eight Two, Brute?
Eight Two is a Brooklyn, New York based '00s Alternative/experimental/melodic/acoustic/electro/folk/punk/art/rock outfit founded in 2008. Their quirky music is epic, honest and challenging, just like the city they love.
Their songwriter, Misha, is a visual artist who hallucinates music, they say he made 82 paintings while sleeping in his art gallery opening, when he woke up he lived in the gallery painting for 28 days straight and finished 81 of 82 - Eight Two's music are his the 82nd painting. eighttwomusic.com/whyeighttwo
Their live act has been described as "sweetly raucous and softly life altering". They played numerous shows around NYC starting last fall and ending this spring with intimate shows in the parks.
They are currently completing their second CD which builds on the rich melodies and textures of their first, but with a more guitaristic and acoustic sound, and influences from Film, Folk, Latin and Outer Space. The single "Venus" offers a flavor of their new sound - but all tracks on the new record are original.
GG is the genius behind the guitar and is also a notable producer and film composer, he is currently stranded in Colombia. Adam trained as a Jazz drummer and has played with some heavy hitters before Eight Two.
Eight Two are not trying to be unique or different, their music just comes out that way.
Who are the two?
Misha Bittleston (Vocals)
Gerardo Giraldo (Guitars)
