Over the past year the group has cultivated its sound with a permanent lineup and an arsenal of vintage gear, including analogue equipment, synthesizers, mixers and filters that bring warmth to the group’s electronic sound.
The album isn’t due out till fall, but front lady Holly Mullinax says that the feel of the newer material is a bit of a departure from the group’s prior releases. “A lot of people said that our last album was dark and brooding,” she says. “This album is dancier, but still has depth. We want to make people dance and think at the same time.”
Sonen will perform its new songs at the Laserbeam Kitty party this Saturday. Kid Pyramid (aka Ben Coleman of Judi Chicago) will kick things off, followed by an electronic synth-pop act from Lexington, Ky., called the Pass. Following the bands, command of the dance floor will be taken over by DJs Brian Parris and Keith Evans.
Laserbeam Kitty featuring Sonen returns to the Highland Inn Ballroom. Sat., June 11. $5. 9 p.m. 644 N. Highland Ave. 404-874-5756.
