Every week, 88Nine brings you a new track from a Milwaukee artist. They send it to us. We post it here. You hear it before everyone else.
For this week’s premiere, we’ve got the latest from the Milwaukee-based art collective VUCA, and the first single from their upcoming concept album “The Geometry of Lies,” which is out June 29. You can stream “Lovely Child,” a collaboration with Milwaukee artists Dave Olson and Barbara Stephan, below.
Over the course of the year, VUCA will be releasing a song alongside a Kindle Single every month. So when the album releases, there will be a companion book with a score… or is it a score with a book?
“Lovely Child” was written within an hour during a magical session between co-writers Keller Fitzsimmons and Barbara Stephan. We have a voice memo from this day and it’s insane! VUCA will be releasing songs with Lex Allen, Worldwide DG and Amanda Huff this summer and fall, so stay tuned!
