14 MARCH 2018…Los Angeles, CA…Critically-acclaimed electro-pop band no:carrier and award-winning singer/songwriter Scilla are releasing their first collaborative EP, Chasing Tears, on March 30.
The songs are in the vein of Portishead, Massive Attack and Morcheeba, but with a modern touch. Chasing Tears is dark, somber, and emotive with songs dealing with deep fears of regret and failure and stories of breakups and emancipation.
no:carrier’s Chris Wirsig says, “Since hearing Portishead’s Dummy for the first time, I always wanted to produce some Trip Hop songs. In Scilla I’ve found the perfect partner for that, and her background in Jazz and Pop brings the melodic base to the songs while I can throw in some electronic production.” The duo made its live debut on March 5 in the famed Hunnypot showcase at the legendary The Mint in Los Angeles.
no:carrier was founded by composer and producer Chris Wirsig in Germany in 1995. The band has released more than fifteen albums and EPs, often featuring unique singers from all over the world. It is a music project in constant evolution, finding its unique sound through inspiration from dark wave, synthpop, acoustic, and electro genres.
Scilla is an award-winning singer and songwriter from Switzerland. Now based in Los Angeles, her music features pop, jazz, cabaret, and burlesque influences. As a songwriter, she won several international awards for her songs “Sometimes” and “Champagne and Sugar,” which can be heard in the award-winning movie “Muffin Top” (available on Netflix). As an artist she was a finalist in the Swiss final of the “Eurovision Song Contest” and “Switzerland’s Got Talent.”
