U.V.A.
U.V.A. is the result of a collaboration between Andrew Ranaudo and artists Jill Auckenthaler and Carl Ferrero. Weaving together New Wave designs and synthpop sounds, they create graceful melodies that soar over dissonant chordal structures; a hard percussive cornerstone ignites dancefloor madness while the dreaminess of the synths inspires introspection; the mix is by turns beautiful and harsh, agitated and soothing, danceable and divine. Time Out New York calls U.V.A. "bucolic electro pop".

In the words of The Deli Mag: "We love it when bands just give us the genre definition of their music themselves - and we love it even more when such definition is not super cheesy and works perfectly in describing their sound. CAVES is a Brooklyn based band (via North Carolina and San Francisco) that plays, as they say, "trash can psychadelia in an industrial wasteland"... therefore you should get: droney atmospheres - check; dreamy vocals and effects - check; distorted drums - check. Also, somehow the words "industrial wasteland" make us think of some parts of Bushwick - we wouldn't be surprised if they lived just there. But you may ask, are they good? We didn't see them live yet but we are definitely enjoying their songs, which sound like a "DIY-er" version of The Secret Machines flirting at times with a more "avant" approach reminiscent of Animal Collective. The industrial element is limited to the recurrent but always sparse distorted percussive elements (this "noise factory" is a rather slow one, unlike most "proper" industrial acts, who enjoy to turn the BPM knob up)."
