The company’s reputation is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form.

Kuinka

McIntyre Hall welcomes back local favorites KUINKA! Described by NPR Music as joyous folk pop, Kuinka “laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyn’s mid-aughts guitar-rock revival” (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, ukulele, and synthesizers. For all of their sonic experimentation, the Seattle quintet songs and live shows are linked by an infectious energy that remains present in everything they do. Their new full-length album Shiny Little Corners is out now. “Kuinka crafts songs that are engaging and original with a proper amount of established canon and innovation. Stories are laced through the lyrics, there are celebrations as well as lamentations—there is synth and cello! It is such a wonderful thing to hear a sound you’ve adored for so long ameliorated like this, with nothing missing, only new possibilities added to the mix.” ~ Paste Music & Daytrotter “Seraphic vocals bookended by ukulele, cello, and heavy percussion will leave you feeling giddy and glad to be alive.” ~ The Stranger
