BLUE SKY BLACK DEATH
Blue Sky Black Death is an accomplished West Coast production duo. Their sound transforms the raw into the refined through technically building layers that exceed the boundaries of any one particular musical genre. Often a single track will involve a violin, cello, keyboard, and guitar mixed with live vocals and abstract samples. Every song compiles and manipulates to make the music engage on several levels, and each album surpasses the next in expectation thus creating surprise. Their name borrowed from the skydiving term, beauty before death, mirrors their longevity and ability to bring back to life, dead and forgotten dimensions.
BSBD has received praise from such publications as Pitchfork, The Fader, Complex, Forbes, LA Times, Spin, XXL Magazine, Stereogum, Rock Sound, The Source, Noisey, Wired Magazine, Prefix Magazine, URB, The Fox Is Black, Pigeons and Planes, Passion Weiss, Hypetrak, Pop Matters, and more, and their music has led them to receive world wide recognition.
