Calliope Musicals - Cosmic Poison Arrow

On Calliope Musicals’ forthcoming LP with RARR, Color/Sweat, lead singer Carrie Fussell lets out lyrics like she just licked the apple of Eden and likes it. Calliope’s antic live shows are a blast of secondhand glam fueled by an inclusive yet otherworldly sound. Lush keys and guitars provide propulsion for lift-off, or lube for a love-in, as Fussell’s lyrics slip in her resilient confessions. As Fussell sums up the group: “We came from space. We’re all going to die.”
