These guys are odd. And their shows are odd. Pure oddness? Nah, because their music – electronic, noisy, full of (sometimes) hidden, beautiful melodies and mysterious voices – is simply stunning. ”They” are Utopia Park, two young lads straight from Fairfield, Iowa.

The band’s first ever release “s/t” can be downloaded for free on Bandcamp. It includes six songs about “slaying / getting slayed / nothing but crosses”, which I discovered thanks to my man Lane just this evening. Do the same and let yourself be surprised!
