The Spotlight (x2)

1

By Alan Ho

Everything is good with the world when you can double it up.  And this edition of The Spotlight brings the rare double where The Spotlight doesn’t hit up just one act that needs to be seen and heard by you, the music fan, but TWO.  You heard it right, TWO.  So here we go…

The Narrative:

Where:  New York City

For fans of:  Destry, Straylight Run, Bon Iver, KONGOS, Mae

Not every music act needs to be an overnight sensation.  Sometimes slow and steady makes for some enduring music and for this now NYC folk-pop duo, they have certainly made some enduring music that until now somehow resided in the periphery of the music world.  The Spotlight now wonders how they missed this one back in 2006 but is glad the light is on them before they become likely breakout candidates before the end of the year!

Suzie Zeldin (some may know her as one of the key parts of the Chris Carrabba fueled supergroup Twin Forks) and Jesse Gabriel combine their musical influences of ska, 60’s punk rock, hip-hop and emo with modern influences like synthpop into a highly ambient, ethereal and yet rich musical tapestry that can only be described as “unique.”

Take a watch.  And a listen to what The Narrative are all about in their recently released music video “Chasing a Feeling.”  And by the end of the video and song, you might end up wanting to chase them yourself!
