TEACH ME EQUALS

"Haunting, gorgeous, encompassing, and intense." -MixtapeMuse

"Dark, baroque-flavored rock..."
-Creative Loafing

 




"A sexy, sinister sound... [Teach Me Equals] is willing to walk the line between catchy, crafty, and cathartic." -This Week In Sarasota

"Venturesome... Opting for drama, melody, and spontaneity, they’re testing the bounds of pop music" -Orlando Weekly

"The two are planning to gallivant around the country in a camper for a full year, playing at wherever venues will have them. Pray they come back." -Sarasota Magazine




"Dark, baroque-flavored rock with more urgent pacing and experimentation than previous excursions, Bitter Painter has a lo-fi Grizzly Bear-haunting quality imbued from the all-analog studio and reel-to-reel tape machines they used to record the layers of fuzzy guitars, mechanized beats, and electric violins and looped cellos plucked, drawn through mood-setting swells, liberated in dramatic staccato bursts or scraped forth in squealing scales. The overlap of Murphy’s throaty rich vocals and Bortnichak’s lower register talk-murmur style and ethereal higher-register add an intriguing capriciousness to the tracks." -Creative Loafing

Sarasota Florida’s Teach Me Equals is proud to announce that they will be extending their tour of North America through February 2014 to include appearances across the southeast and midwest of the United States. This extension follows an ambitious five consecutive months of touring the US and Canada, and coincides with the free digital release of "Swallow The Smoke" -the first track to surface from Teach Me Equals’ yet-to-be-released debut full-length, mixed and mastered by Joel Nanos (Rad Key, Mumford and Sons). Watch the video on YouTube.

Since forming in 2011, Teach Me Equals’ Erin Murphy and Greg Bortnichak have been carving a niche for themselves in the national independent arts and music scene. With their unorthodox use of classical stringed instruments, live loops, and skeletal electronica, Teach Me Equals create dense, multi-layered landscapes that are as close to a punk-rock reading of Richard Wagner as they are to a minimalist deconstruction of Miley Cyrus.

Creative Loafing describes Teach Me Equals as: "Dark, baroque-flavored rock ... layers of fuzzy guitars, mechanized beats, and electric violins and looped cellos plucked, drawn through mood-setting swells, liberated in dramatic staccato bursts or scraped forth in squealing scales." Baynard Woods, Senior Editor of the Baltimore City Paper, said, simply: "They really blew my fucking mind." Either way, it is clear that the band has been making waves on their own (tireless) accord. They have earned collaborations with the likes of Circa Survive, Delicate Steve, and Metal Hearts, among others, and show no signs of slowing down in the year to come.
