It's A Musical!

It's A Musical! is Ella Blixt and Robert Kretzschmar, a duo that makes sparkling indie pop music with organs, synths, pianos and drums.No guitars allowed here, ladies and gents. The Swedish/German band has an untouchable element to their music that is both seemingly full of child-like imagination and a dreamy sugar glaze, probably because most of the time the synths feel like they're straight from those awesome 8-bit Nintendo games. Sounding like an early Mates of States on songs like "Lazy" and a stripped aesthetic version of Georgie James, It's A Musical! have much going for them. They are currently taking a European tour with two other bands, Sin Fang Bous and Borko.
