Kodacrome is Elissa Pociask (keys, vocals) and Ryan Casey (drums, electronics). Elissa writes memorable melodies with interesting lyrics. Ryan builds soundscapes that weave themselves in and around Elissa’s voice. Unlike a lot of electronic drum and synth based bands their sound is not overly cluttered with too many sounds or effects. Their music is straightforward and unique. The band began making music together from opposite coasts, Elissa in San Francisco and Ryan in Brooklyn. Their sound is a bit of what one might expect from the two hip centers of America without slamming you over the head with their hipness hammer. The gritty electric sound of Brooklyn combined with the uplifting spirit of San Fran make for a good mix. You can catch them live on Martha’s Vineyard Sat. 9.29.11 at Nectar’s.
