Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards - Bitter Better

Expanding on the boundaries of what an indie-folk band can be, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards take their extensive string music background, add their knowledge of folk and roots music, and incorporate an edgy pop sensibility to create their latest album, Bitter Better. A stunning lesson in all the ways string instruments can be played - bowed, plucked, percussively – the album showcases Cortese and multi-instrumentalist producer Sam Kassirer (Lula Wiles, Lake Street Dive) striving to capture the most adventurous approach to each moment. The result is an album that incorporates dance-worthy foundational grooves, synth, and loops to push the boundaries of the genre.
