Cicada Rhythm

Born and raised in Georgia, this talented pair imitates and modernizes folk music to a rejuvenating degree. The sound of Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis exhibits skilled and articulate guitar picking honed in the dive bars of Atlanta over rolling Julliard-trained bass lines. Expect chilling harmonies, unbridled enthusiasm, some wholesome tunes and a sincere performance

A Julliard-trained standup bassist and a train-hopping troubadour walk into a bar…sounds like the lead into a nerdy joke, but it’s not. It is the recipe that yielded the elegant and eponymous Normaltown Records debut from Cicada Rhythm. A diverse and adventurous 12-song collection that slides easily between folk, rock, blues and Americana, each song soars with an authenticity crafted by primary members Andrea Demarcus and David Kirslis. The album was recorded in a diverse range of environments (like 200-year-old church) with acclaimed producer Drew Vandenberg (Deerhunter, of Montreal)

“What Cicada Rhythm offers is roots music that’s unassuming, expertly played and sung by two clear as glass voices.”  – NPR

“Best Local Folk Act of Atlanta for 2013” – Creative Loafing Atlanta 

“Hypnotic” – American Songwriter

“Regardless of how the influences of folk, jazz and blues intermingled, Cicada Rhythm craft an open-hearted, inventive blend of American musics in deceptively simple songs that are both haunting and playfully jaunty [….] Rarely has a band’s name fit their music so well. Cicada Rhythm conjure up the Southern twilight when the buzz of insects washes in waves through the trees, and that eerie but comforting moment of stasis before the world transforms.” – Creative Loafing Charlotte

“The thing that most impresses about Cicada Rhythm’s sound is how big it is, even though it’s not. Cloaked in sleepy sweetness—all ringing acoustic guitar and sliding upright bass, cooed vocals with snug, Welch/Rawlings-style harmonies—the Atlanta-based duo’s music lands with an impact you didn’t quite see coming.” – Flagpole Athens
