brief Awakening is a small tribe of fairy creatures who can only effectively communicate through art, song, and dance. Mandolin, ethereal vocals, synth, piano, avant garde heart drums and harmonious overtones- swirl, bubble,and trail wherever brief Awakening wanders.
The Siren that is Ryn Arrants magically dances with strange synth noises spatially mixed with rhythmic piano. The tiny beast that is Kay Fox Petrucci stomps on the kick drum at the same time as flying around on their red dragon mandolin. As a multi-instrumentalist, this beast also pounds out melodic drum rhythms when they are on the ground not flying around on their mandolin. Together their whipping tendrils of rhythm and harmonic melody shape a character of sound that is colorful and masked in emotion and spirituality.
They just released their sophomore EP "Excelsior" with Pillow Fort Recording in Asheville, NC. After a fabulous summer tour the creatures are hunkering down in their recording cave to work on their third album "Feathers and Dust", due to be released in early spring of 2016!
