Black Mare is the solo project of Sera Timms, vocalist and bassist for Ides Of Gemini and formerly of the recently disbanded Black Math Horseman. With a focus on rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity, Black Mare steps outside the collaborative dynamic to reveal a creative process that is all Sera’s own. Her songs traverse hidden realms, fragments of dreams, submerged memories and mythical imagery. Where Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini demand volume and collusion, Black Mare requires only quiet contemplation. If Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini seek to summon the deafening roar of inevitability, Black Mare delivers its verdicts in solemn whispers. And yet each operates, in its own way, within the darkened spheres of hypnosis.
Second Still is a three-piece coldwave band formed in New York in early 2014. The name comes from the first song of Modern Eon's debut album Fiction Tales. Taking influence from bands like Sad Lovers and Giants, The Chameleons, and Asylum Party, Second Still pays homage to early post-punk and darkwave and modernized it with electronic elements and unconventional song structures. The band is currently writing, recording, and playing shows and Second Still's songs have been featured on international podcasts and radio shows since summer 2014.
