Romans (US)

Saturday 00.30 @ Hvit, Driv
A chance meeting at New York’s The Bunker brought together Gunnar Haslam and Johannes Auvinen (a.k.a. Tin Man) who became fast friends and collaborators in a joint project called Romans. The two imagine stories and scenes from the Roman era, trying to manifest narratives while celebrating the distortions of the murky lens of time. The result is everything from murky, psychedelic acid-etched cuts to gradually-unfolding up-tempo floor-burners. Both artists play off each other, resulting in unforeseen musical paths, but a sound that is uniquely theirs.
