Time To Get Cultastic
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I once wrote about a band named Her Lips Might Shatter. They were a dark synthpop project from wunderkind, Alisa Nizhniy. (You can check that post out HERE.)
As these things go, I lost touch with Alisa and kind of wondered whatever happened to HLMS. Then fate kind of tapped me on the shoulder and introduced me to Cultastic!
Culttastic is the latest synth-pop solo project from electronic music producer Alisa the DJ enchantress, contortionist, vocalist and self-produced musician whose back and better than ever.
A little less rooted in dark synthpop and a bit more rooted in witch house and j-pop (holy weird influences Batman), Cultastic is like a hybrid of all three. Dark rhythms, and chilled beats sidle next to sugary pop thrills and massive hooks. It might sound a bit confusing, but the songs are good enough where it all flows together flawlessly.
Alisa is flexible in every way imaginable not only physically but also musically and Cultastic is clearly an outlet for that. Just listen and you'll see for yourselves. Whether it's Her Lips Might Shatter, Culttastic, or her just programming a MIDI controller, it's nice to have Alisa back making music.
