White Ring

#sxsw #WhiteRing


WHITE RING are a duo that dwell on the outskirts of pop music. Bryan Kurkimilis and Kendra Malia met on the internet in 2007 and started an email correspondence and exchanged ideas. Growing up in the age of the internet they were inspired by the huge range of music they were exposed to and list trance, rap, ebm, neo-folk and metal as amongst their inspiration. They have developed a unique style based more on the idea of achieving certain feelings of loss and acceptance while pushing the boundaries of accessibilityand musical genre.

The band have been involved with some varied and fantastic official remixes by a wide array of bands from LA's weird rock group HEALTH to modern EBM/industrial legends God Module, to rising trance rappers G-Side. WHITE RING’s track ‘Roses’ was featured in season five of the UK television show Skins.
