IOWA CITY, Iowa, US
Artist / Band / Musician
Skursula’s music is about a violinist, cellist, and accordionist who combine their love of stir frys, pirates, classical music, journal scribbles, and whiskey on the rocks into song. Carrasco and Dial, the two musical scientists hid away until their “little Frankenstein” was born and ready for performance in August 2006. Their latest monstrosiity has been the addition of Harlan Muir on accordion in April of '07. Skursula has performed with: Ambulette, Appleseed Cast, Asobi Seksu, Ad Astra Per Aspera, Tilly and the Wall, Baby Teeth, Black Angels, Vietnam, Young Galaxy, Page France, David Vandervelde, and The Forecast.
Skursula’s idiosyncratic songs generally take the form of character studies, and are thus much like short stories in a song. Influenced greatly by classical, folk and hip-hip, their music ranges from playful to introspective in character. Skursula strives to create a unique musical style for each individual song, rather than trying to develop a general style for their music as a whole.
