LVVMAKING and Contakta present: The Sunken Circus
Dual CD release party!
LVVMAKING is a multimedia band of freaks from Des Moines, IA. The collective has gathered more and more humans since their formation in Summer of 2018, now featuring many Des Moines artists of different disciplines. Because of this, LVVMAKING is a band hardly limited to the conventional definition of the word. Attendees of any LVVMAKING event can expect an enveloping audio and visual experience, with each show being surprisingly different than the last. Their debut album “TRVE LVV” is a synth-heavy rock album featuring nine concise yet dynamic tracks. Lyrically, the record takes on a direct and unashamed voice to explore themes of mental health, interdependence, and our love/hate relationship with reality.
Contakta is a synth pop band from Des Moines, IA comprised of Diana Weishaar, Phil Young, and Ethan Weishaar, who somehow found time between their other major projects (TIRES-Phil and The Host Country-Diana & Ethan) to dive into the electronic world of beats, light, and sound. “Just diverse enough to seem weird, but just similar enough for it to work really, really well together” (Byron Dudley, Iowa Informer Review). While the lyrics explore the depths of human emotion – love, jealousy, desire, pain – in the end they mostly enjoy making music you can shake to, with melodies that everyone can hum the morning after. Having released an introductory 4-song demo EP in 2017, Contakta is excited to release another EP this spring, with plans for much more music to come. Follow their journey on Facebook & Instagram
