Denver’s indie rock quartet Tyto Alba have been making music together since frontwoman Melanie Steinway and guitarist Matt Rossi met at a singer/songwriter showcase in 2014. Steinway (formerly of Howl Moonshine Howl) had just relocated to the Denver area at the time, but had been involved in the Colorado music scene for years. Soon after the two started jamming together, they added in Andrew Bair (of Male Blonding) and Danny DiMarchi (of DJ ChillBro.gov).
After releasing their freshman EP, Oh The Tame One (2015), the foursome went on to share a stage with bands including Boy & Bear, Widowspeak, Mimicking Birds, and Little Hurricane. They also scored a 2016 The UMS performance.
Most recently, Tyto Alba have been laying down some new tunes. With plans for their sophomore EP release of In Our Own Time slated for the spring of 2017, TA have been busy recording, mixing, and mastering in studio. They also released their live music video for their track “Patterns & Habits,” a video which actually came together around election night just a month ago.
Said Steinway, “On the eve of a rather distressing election, we chose to be creative and surrounded by the warmth of our favorite people.”
Watch Tyto Alba’s live music video for their new song “Patterns & Habits”:
With political frustrations abound among our arts and music community, we’re stoked to see local musicians turn that energy into creative art.
The video for “Patterns & Habits” is the first media release from In Our Own Time, and based on the above, we’re looking forward to hearing more from Tyto Alba’s next EP. Stay tuned for our future coverage on this Denver band.
