Acid Tongue is a garage band heavily influenced by soul, folk and psychedelic rock.
The band is composed of Guy Keltner, Ian Cunningham and Jacob Rose — all perverted in their youth, they say, by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Now, after years of extensive traveling throughout the United States as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents’ generation.
Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream states and drifter culture, Acid Tongue seeks to enlighten listeners with their swinging, contemplative lifestyle stylings.
Seattle-based “noir-pop” singer Maiah Manser’s new single will debut on Oct. 21 via Freakout Records.“Second Skin” was produced by Buddy Ross (Frank Ocean), mastered by Tom Coyne (Adele, Beyonce, The Weekend, Justin Bieber) and features string arrangements by Phillip Peterson (Cashmere Cat, Maroon 5, A$AP Rocky featuring Florence and the Machine, Santigold).
In the six years since Manser moved to Seattle and began attending Cornish College of the Arts, she has gained notoriety as a “powerhouse vocalist” and an “art show that sings,” beginning with her first show as a 2013 EMP Sound Off! Competition finalist.
Having toured with Mary Lambert, Manser has shared the stage with the likes of Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Meghan Trainor and Sam Smith and has performed on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show and VH1’s “You Oughta Know.”
This year, Manser has been featured on tracks with Manatee Commune & IG88, composed and produced a 15-minute piece for Los Angeles dance group The TL Collective (which was toured in Germany), and just performed a collection of her original songs at the St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle while conducting a six-piece acapella choir.
