Chicago trio Tiny Fireflies came together in a perfect way: Kristine Capua (Tiny Microphones) and Lisle Mitnik (Fireflies) brought their own complementary pop sensibilities together as a one-off collaboration for a compilation, but the overwhelming popularity of their new “band” led to further collaboration, and eventually to the band we find in front of us today. As a trio — unless you include the drummer, Tom the drum machine — they make perfectly layered, shimmering indie pop with a super nostalgic, sweet vibe. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to show us how they make it happen.
Tiny Fireflies’ debut album, The Space Between, is available now.
