Head Below the Halo
The Salt Lake City band Summerhead is creating a new sound in electronica. While mixing experimentalism with electronic pop, the band has been recognized for adding a beauty that is not always found in dance music. The core duo James Holmes and Gary Svedin formed Summerhead in 1997. While being fond of dance music, other influences such as the minimalist composer Michael Nyman, Cocteau Twins (to whom Summerhead owes their name), and Moby can be heard in their music.
