- Volta Bureau -
Volta Bureau, a new D.C.-based electronic group with Will Eastman, Outputmessage (Bernard Farley) and Micah Vellian (Miguel Lacsamana), recently debuted their first single, "Hope". The song is an upbeat, hypnotic, piano-laden tune, set on a sparse, almost melancholic backdrop, while Outputmessage lends a subdued, soulful vocal performance. Lyrically, conveying both the obsessive nature of Hope and what the future may bring, this bittersweet notion is perfect for closing out the summer.
Formed in D.C. in 2010 and announced in May of this year, Volta Bureau's hypnotic, cosmic take on house, techno and disco is already turning heads and gathering fans, including support from Danny Daze, Phantom's Revenge, Lord Nenis (Top Billin), Nacey, Richard Richard, Cosmo Baker, John Roman and Heavyfeet. With four original preview tracks and a remix for Ursula 1000 (featuring Fred Schneider of The B-52s) under their belt, Volta Bureau is well on their way to becoming one of D.C.'s premier electronic acts.
“Love [‘Hope’]. Beautiful summer vibes. 100% support in my Loopjack sets, and 110% support on my iPod” – John Roman/Loopjack
"...Volta Bureau's [sound embraces] incredibly catchy, melodic grooves. These aren't ‘tracks’ they are songs. House music is still alive and living in Washington D.C.!" - Cosmo Baker
Volta Bureau’s debut single, “Hope” is available digitally on September 5th - Their debut preview tracks, "Let Go," "The Greatest" “Love Cubed” and most recent, “On Your Own” are available for free download at http://soundcloud.com/voltabureau.
