Following the split of local electronic outfit Sonmi, two of that band’s members, Dave Mathes (drums, synths and production) and Nigel Gilmer (bass, synths and production) formed Hi-Alta. The duo describes its sound as “analog synths, bleeding-edge beats, found sounds, and live drum/bass goodness.”
Already, Hi-Alta has a set-worth of material and has begun to play live shows — they’ll perform at One Stop on Friday, Aug. 2 with Samuel Paradise and Splynter. Doors at 9 p.m., $5. Xpress will give away a pair of tickets to the show on Wednesday.
