Mirror Fears
Mirror Fears is dark, dreamy, richly melodic, fun, weird, and harsh. Kate began recording 4-tracks and teaching herself how to use music software at around age 20. As several bands formed and dissolved in the next few years, complete control over her own music became increasingly more appealing. She released her first self-titled EP as Mirror Fears in late 2010, and was just beginning to play out when she met the friends who would become the band Talk All Night. Since 2011, Kate has been enjoying partitioning her time between the two projects. The first full-length Mirror Fears album was finished as new years struck 2012, and following years would bear witness to many performances both in and out of Colorado, multiple releases, and collaboration with artists such as Hollow Press, Time, Doctype, Dangerous Nonsense, and Curta. Lyrically, Mirror Fears explores gender binary deconstruction, the freedom of queerness, Catholic guilt, the contradictory nature of capitalism, the absurdity of self-consciousness, desire, the power of names, and other stuff like scratched CDs, sniper rifles, and bugs. Musically, Mirror Fears is all of the lushness and vibrance of 90’s dark wave combined with modernized industrial IDM electronica.

Church fire
David Samuelson and Shannon Webber form the creative power behind Denver’s “majestic, witchy, up-to-no-good” electronic noisepop duo church fire. Webber’s strange, twitchy and ravishing vocals have complimented Samuelson’s artful darkwave compositions since the group formed in 2012. Sculpted from a sense of balance in opposites – light and dark, soft but aggressive and a spiritual reclamation of the divine feminine – church fire’s fantastical visual and aural creations consistently deliver a live performance like no other.
