Des Moines, IA
Electro pop
Enigmatic and eclectic are words we use to describe the puzzling, unknown and hard to classify. When something comes along that has familiarity yet is completely foreign in its overall presentation, we are determined to make sense of it. We spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to figure out what it is that is stumping us so we can put our finger on it. When we fail to recognize the anomaly, we are often surprised, impressed and elated by its newness. Ancient Posse does that. Ancient Posse brings a contemporary, innovative sound, breathing originality into the Des Moines music scene.

Blurring genre lines by combining elements of R&B, trip-hop, acid jazz and dream pop, Ancient Posse is definitely hard to classify. They are tentatively planning a release for later in 2017, and under the tutelage of producer Brandon Darner (The Envy Corps) it will undoubtedly create some buzz. However, still in its infancy, the group’s coming out at 80/35 is sure to befuddle, bedazzle and enchant all who gather to witness.
