Enigmatic Chicago-based electronic duo NONE OF YOUR CONCERN, is a partnership comprised of two masked artists that were raised on different sides of the musical spectrum. One is a classically trained musician, performing arts teacher and former dancer, who uses the arts to promote social justice. The other fronts a local LGBTQ+ punk band and has worked for a decade to bring multiple genres of music to the queer community on the west side of Chicago.
NOYC was born out of the two’s love of electronic music and its ability to create a world of sounds. The music can best be described as a blend of darkwave and EBM with subtle hip hop influences. Anonymity allows this project to be viewed as an entity presenting avant-garde art. The geometric nature of the masks correlates with the architecture of sounds from different genres that the duo uses to sculpt their signature vibe.
Following the release of the haunting “Cinnamon”, “an ode to letting your guard down, and taking the risk of truly revealing yourself to loved ones”, and the dark and suspenseful synth-infused drone “Lied”, a masterpiece in sound editing that is the shivering synesthesia down the spine, NONE OF YOUR CONCERN have dropped the entire PRIMER LP for advanced listening ahead of its release.
