"Concert Preview: And The Kids with Dalahäst at Barking Legs Theater"

Chattanooga's own foggy pop duo Dalahäst will be sharing the stage with And The Kids and bringing their ramshackle dream pop noise to Barking Legs. Composed of Elizabeth Lawrensen and Christopher Williams, the duo concocts hazy synth-influenced pop music that draws inspiration from classical music's ornate arrangements and indie rock's assertive noise. But Lawrensen and Williams offer a skewed perspective on these sounds—it's slightly rickety and feels like it could fall apart at the slightest touch. But it's this sense of restless construction that gives their music its resolve and resourcefulness.

The duo lists influences such as Bat for Lashes, Grimes and Stars on their Facebook page, and you can definitely hear these artists threading their fingers through Dalahäst's music. It quickly becomes obvious that they're not weighed down by these influences but driven on by them through a need to create and discover distinct avenues of interpretation. It's a unique and insular sound that should sound right at home next to the tilted pop tendencies of And The Kids. - Nooga.com
