Uni Ika Ai is a Brooklyn band whose personnel reads like a supergroup of the borough’s most notable acts from the past few years — headed up by Maia Friedman (Bobby, Toebow), in collaboration with Peter Lalish (Lucius, Elizabeth & The Catapult), and rounded out with Tom Deis (Via Audio) and Dan Drohan. The band is still a relatively new endeavor, but the members’ combined experience yields a masterful result. At its core, the project feeds on improvisation and experimental sounds, yet the output is wholly sweet and melodic, in a perfect blend of art and pop. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to show us just how they make their magical sounds work together.
Keeping A Golden Bullseye In The Corner of My Mind is available October 14, 2016.
