Acharis: Blue Sky / Grey Heaven LP (Zum Media / Cranes Records)Release date: November 5, 2021
Bio: Since forming in 2015 in Oakland, CA, The Acharis have been a creative outlet for life partners Shaun Wagner and Mila Puccini. After being in the Bay Area music scene for years in different bands, they decided to create something all their own. Trading off vocals and songwriting duties, they performed and recoded every instrument themselves on their 2017 debut ‘Lost in the Vortex.’ Their upcoming follow up album ‘Blue Sky / Grey Heaven’ finds them joining forces with the legendary producer John Fryer (Cocteau Twins , Depeche Mode, This Mortal Coil). The darker, more produced sound, along with their newly recruited full live band, deliver a spectrum of moods, ranging from fragile noise pop to fuzzed out shoegaze.
