The Upper Strata

We are an Electro Indie Duo.

Looped and synth sounds combined with programmed dance beats, live bass, guitar, accordion, and vocals? Yes, this actually exists! For their live show, they combine found sounds, film clips, samples, noise and other elements, which hints at DADA, surrealism, and German expressionism.
