Electronic from the Midwest TOTD: Linear Symmetry – “Simulate”
Bursting with high-energy, live organic tunes from Omaha, NE, Linear Symmetry is a livetronica duo composed of keyboardist Chris Story and drummer Andy Alback who began producing back in 2013. The two artists know no limits when it comes to making music, and their sound maintains upbeat, danceable tempos but often experiments with funky samples and jamtronica influences to create depth within their already intricate and unique style.
Chris’ keyboardist skills alongside Andy’s ability to crush the drum set separate the two from some of the more mainstream EDM acts with live musical and visual components forming an unprecedented performance that is gaining increasing popularity throughout the Midwest and beyond.
“Simulate”, a track released by the duo that was submitted to The Untz’s track challenge, begins calmly and with a melodic feel, then expands into more uptempo beats with a digitalized sound and funky, oldschool keyboard. This highly energetic song is a staple within Linear Symmetry’s edgy sound, and fans both old and new can prepare to get groovey on the dancefloor to “Simulate”.
Aside from from the musical aspect of LS, Chris and Andy have curated a specialized visual experience for each one of their performances, including a symmetrical stage setup with their respective instruments and equipment as well as state-of-the-art lighting and projections.
Linear Symmetry is preparing to perform at Dancefestopia Music Festival in Kansas City, and you can check out some clips from their recent shows as well as learn about more upcoming tour dates on their official website here.
