MC, aka Maria-Christina, is an award winning, experimental electric harp player. Originally hailing from Greece but now based in London, she performs as MC & The 7 Pedals, a project with which she creates beautifully fresh and hypnotic compositions on her electro-acoustic harp using loop, ‘wah’ and distortion pedal effects.

Sasha & The Bear is the project of singer-songwriter-producer and multi-instrumentalist Dov Eagle who is now based in Brooklyn but grew up in Tel-Aviv. He incorporates the work and creative inspiration of singers and artists from around the world, to great effect. Using snippets of Donald Trump’s infamous ‘Make America Great Again’ speech, Captain’s Ship features the vocals of Sasha Daniel and combines emotive lyrics and Middle Eastern influenced percussion with at times uncomfortable visuals to create a somewhat twisted love story.  The track is political and poppy, strong samples sitting comfortably alongside the mellowest vocals, guitar and electronica. The video for Captain’s Ship contains nudity and strong images but no bears.
