NÆ returns from the Orbital Ice Cream tour!
NÆ is a Chicago-based pop artist with a synth-driven sonic palette and humorous lyrical satire. NÆ’s songs address the absurdities of American aspirational lifestyles — think unicorn parties, sugary coffee drinks, and sexting. Her music is a lively infusion of electronic, dance pop, and 80’s synth-pop influences. NÆ’s 2021 LP Push Button Future, has been applauded as “a dance-pop confection with a biting edge, commenting on modern-day issues of consumerism, commercialism, influencer culture,” by Scapi Magazine. NÆ (Artist JaNae Contag) and her co-pilot Blizz (Producer Ryan Black) have been recognized internationally for their intergalactic live-stream series, Saturnae: Orbital Ice Cream which incorporates original music, puppetry, and guest interviews, with a sci-fi journey in pursuit of cosmic ice cream flavors. NÆ and Blizz are embarking on their 2022 Orbital Ice Cream Tour this summer.
ryan flynn - the New York perpetual orb-praising space pop venture of Ryan Cullinane. Driven by a mixture of electronic pop, funk and psychedelia, the project continues to explore new spatial sounds while staying grounded with familiar roots. What started as a small album passed amongst film school friends has now become an incredible creative ride into the future.
The 2019 eponymous EP Ryan Flynn, began a streak of shows alongside acts such as KNOWER, Boy Jr., and Crunk Witch across New York that would provide as the foundation for what continuously builds as a live experience for the music. After a year of performing, 2020 abruptly brought about a different world, to which he took advantage of time in lockdown to write. Seems Like Yesterday acted as ryan flynn's fresh return to releasing new music, followed by Pressure, Outside, and Automatic Love which coasted him through 2021.
At the end of the summer of 2021, ryan flynn returned to performing live as part of San Francisco's very own Star Crash Synth Pop party. He has since returned home to New York with shows lined up throughout the winter and hopes to get back to other states and cities soon. 2022 finds ryan flynn with new music, visuals, shows and a new album.
Praise Orb. Spread love.
