Origami Ghosts
Origami Ghosts
Seattle/Austin tangly pop and folk, squeeze of punk...what is antifolk?...dance!!! note: could also be infectious weird pop...or twee alternative

On Healthy Travel Potions: “The LP is a fifteen-track collection of shimmering, folk-tinged jangle pop...Origami Ghosts deftly merge the mundane with the fantastic, exploring the magic of the Earth, the complexities of aging, and the inherent joy and meaning that can be drawn from something as simple as sharing a meal. ...There’s a pervasive thread of of the mystical that runs throughout the album. The pair has created a celebration of nature and spirituality unveiled over a thick haze of jangling guitars, atmospheric keys, and Scesniak’s infectious vocal melodies.” ...on HTP single “Solitary Beast”: “a sparkling jangle pop track that marvels at the Earth’s beauty and its surreal sway over all its inhabitants. ...It’s just one page in a 15-year scrapbook of ideas and sounds that Scesniak and various band members have collected in the different iterations of the outfit. Wonder of the natural world and spiritual enlightenment are topics meant to give the sense that maybe, hopefully, that all is not as negative and dire on the planet we co-inhabit.” The Big Takeover.

"If you like experimental indie bands like tUnE-yArDs or Dirty Projectors, “Plunge In Love” should be right up your alley." - Surviving the Golden Age

"A track of disarming melodies that creates its own subcategory of serene prog indie. The band can easily find themselves on festival stages next to the likes of Ty Segall, Flaming Lips and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard." - Glide Magazine

“Is it just me, or do you two get even more wonderful every time I see you? Loved the addition of a drummer at your last show. Thank you for the unbridled joy and whimsy (and Cassie's multi-instrumental swagger) at every performance. I'm glad Austin has you now. <3” Dot Matrix from KOOP Radio’s “The Girlie Show” in Austin, TX.

“...entertaining, energetic, experimental music – think Frank Zappa meets Jonathan Richmond. It’s poppy with a punk ethos, independent and interesting.” Liz MacDonald, Monterey County Weekly.
