01-08-2019 12:00:00 01-08-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Moon Gel | 7:30 pm Beginning as a fleeting summer camp friendship, synth pop duo, Moon Gel's genre-bending approach fuses elements of indie, pop, electronic, and jazz to create an avant-garde sound all their own. Having both grown up in the New York City area, Khaya and Emily pride themselves on their honest outlook and independent mindset. The conventions of pop music typically call for formulaic compositions constructed by hired songwriters. Instead, the duo prefers to keep things personal by writing, recording, and producing all of their own music. Lead vocalist and producer, Khaya, felt her soulful voice emerge at a young age. At 15, she was a finalist on The X Factor, but quickly realized the popstar archetype was not made for her. Now a matured college student, she realizes her artistic vision extends far beyond easy-listening pop. Instrumentalist and composer Emily comes from a background of jazz and classical music. She is determined to revolutionize these long-established sounds and bring them to the forefront of new-age composition. Together, Khaya and Emily are marrying their divergent musical experiences and inspirations to define Moon Gel. Channeling acts such as St. Vincent, Chairlift, Phantogram, Broods, Grimes, Lorde, and Charli XCX, Moon Gel is a synth pop band with a twist in every direction. Stepping out of the box of defined genre, Khaya and Emily strive to make their listeners a little uncomfortable. Ultimately, Moon Gel's goal is to bring music of substance, wholly created by women, to the frontline of culture. Moon Gel wants to submerge contemporary pop music into a slightly darker world and showcase the moody sound that they've created. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=378001 Groove Groove
