EL LAGO is ready to explore new visions. ‘Pyramid’ intertwines their dream pop and shoegaze beginnings with notes of post-punk and new wave. Out now on Wallflower Records, ‘Pyramid’ takes bold steps in adding a darker element to their already pleasantly abstracted sound. Gaining much regional support with debut album Colors (2017), EL LAGO opened for Lætitia Sadier of Stereolab, The Black Angels, as well as the main stage at In Bloom Music Festival (formerly Free Press Summer Fest) for Sylvan Esso and more. The band closed out 2019 with a festival set at LEVITATION in Austin, Texas, and is currently writing new material for an upcoming release.
Swimwear Department, makes songs about two topics: swimming pools and shopping malls. The Houston, Texas dance-punk band brings party power reminiscent of Electric Six, The Presidents of the United States of America, and The B-52s. Fans frequently join enthusiastic shout-alongs and improvised line dances.
Houston audio/video engineer by day, songwriter and performer by night, Raycheal Winters creates tasty synth pop delights with a bent toward R&B. Her vocal influences include artists of many genres including but not limited to Halsey, Sky Ferreira, LP, Alanis Morissette, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jacob Collier and many others. With a combination of live and programmed instruments Raycheal has performed at a variety of venues including White Oak Music Hall, Warehouse Live, and the House of Blues. Raycheal craves the opportunity to connect with her audience, and she prides herself on sending a positive message through her knee drops on stage and a catchy chorus.
Input Output is a creative media lab comprised of Billy Baccam and Alex Ramos. They bring inanimate structures and spaces to life by combining art, science, technology, and architecture with the creative implementation of light and sound. Each bring innovative approaches along with unique human experiences that shape their artistic process. Together, they aim to make their mark on Houston and beyond by partnering with artists, institutions, and events such as Dream Machine, The Health Museum, Art Car Ball, Nuit Blanche, HUE Mural Festival, and Seismique Museum among many others to provide unique and novel experiences for people to enjoy.
