Metermaids Ready to Rock NYC
Over the next few weeks the NY-based duo Metermaids are ready to set new fans on fire with shows at S.O.B’s and Mercury Lounge. Boasting hints of classic hip-hop, indie-rock and Motown influences, the pair of emcees expands on the fundamentals of hip-hop by bringing a truly unique flavor to everything they touch, either recorded or in real-time. Equipped with a raucous live band, compelling songwriting, and bold stage presence, Metermaids are getting nods all over the place for their live shows. As CMJ.com said, "…Metermaids make a truly impressive mark on stage… the two emcees, Swell and Sentence, create a magical energy… There certainly won’t be a shortage of people putting their hands in the air!"
Monday 11/24 SOB’s- 8pm
Tuesday 11/25 Mercury Lounge- 10pm
The Metermaids are two New York emcees, Swell and Sentence, who met through NYC’s underground hip-hop scene in 2006. Embodying the convergence of indie rock and hip-hop, the Metermaids represent a new sound in crossover music that bends and melds genres, unveiling new possibilities both lyrically and musically. After hooking up with the producer Matt Stine of 27 Sound they released their debut EP in 2006. The duo then hit the road touring with the likes of Brand Nubian, Atmosphere, Sage Francis, Fabulous, Lady Bug Mecca (Digable Planets), The Lox, and Camp Lo. In 2008, with an arsenal of touring under their belt, the Metermaids launched their first full-length Nightlife, a raucous mash up of gritty break beats, heartfelt lyrics, and a touch of rock n’ roll. Nightlife is currently available on 27 Sound Entertainment.
