THREE FOR SILVER + HOT DAMN SCANDAL
(a dark folk supergroup)
THREE FOR SILVER
Three For Silver is an aggressively original band that is impervious to easy description.
PR people often use phrases like Mythic Americana, Doomfolk, or Apocalypso.
Three For Silver features one-of-a-kind instruments you've never seen playing styles mixed in ways you've never heard. Perhaps it is pop music from an exceptionally dark parallel dimension.
HOT DAMN SCANDAL
Hot Damn Scandal finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways.
The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar.
Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and puts thunder in your molasses.
A folk band from Portland, Oregon with their minds set on making a sweet cacophony to your ear holes. Started in 2017 with their first album titled "Vol. I" this group focuses on storytelling, structure, odd meter, and vocal arrangement.
More music to be announced soon.
