THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 7 – 10 PM
THE CONCERT WILL START AT 7.30 PM
Undercurrent is happy to host a special concert with a guest musician from Lithuania, Migloko! Come out to support us and to have a good time!
A voice and a boombox. In 2009, while still a teenager in music school in Vilnius, Lithuania, Migloko attracted the attention of thousands with the eclectic songs she started putting up on the internet. A deep, growling voice echoes over the boombox’s spare arrangements, drawing comparisons to Lana del Rey, but with a eurochic, neo-Goth twist. The haunting breaths break through a curtain of long, black hair.
Migloko has toured widely in Europe and opened for Nouvelle Vague in the French lounge band’s only concert in Vilnius. She has also performed in the US, been nominated for the Lithuanian version of a Grammy, and reached the semi-finals to represent her home country at Eurovision in 2019 with the feral “Rožės (Roses),” where the forceful demands of the refrain break themselves into single syllables grabbing attention between the misleadingly gentle beats of the backing track.
Legendary producer Leon Somov remixed “Rožės,” excavating and exposing anew the original’s anthemic essence. This summer, the collaborations continued, as Migloko played the role of Buttercup, featuring on “Girls, Girls, Girls,” a Powerpuff Girls–infused feminist call to arms by the grande dame of Lithuanian pop, Erica Jennings.
