Hawaiin artist Ginger Dunnill and Mandan Hidatsa Arikara artist Cannupa Hanska Luger together make Glad as Knives. They’re a mix of electronic music, Ginger’s sweet, smooth vocals and Cannupa’s raps, or, as the band describes their sound, “art trash”. Indeed their artistry extends beyond the aural. In addition to music and poetry, they incorporate masked performance into their work, inviting the audience to step onto their side of the veil, to their depiction of the absurd and beautiful.
They sent us this track to check out and it’s been in our ears ever since.
