Sama Dams / Merō
This is a past event. Sunday, February 17 at 9:00pm
Doug Fir Restaurant, Bar & Lounge 830 E. Burnside St., Portland, OR 97214
Portland avante-indie outfit Sama Dams captures sonically the jarring disconnect between how “normal” looks in present-day America, and how it feels. On their most recent LP Say It, verses enter on light feet, then pirouette into lurching refrains that crush with truths about who we are and who we would like to appear to be, atop keys and synth that, “slither and flutter through the songs like a living breathing thing.” (Ben Salmon, The Portland Mercury)
Merō is experimental, moody dream pop from Portland, Ore., comprised of lush cavernous vocals, swelling guitars, moody synths, trip hop beats and a dreamy cello.
