Jessy Lanza, the ethereal electro R&B specter behind Pull My Hair Back (out last year via Hyperdub) will be haunting Amnesia this Saturday as the headliner of the 15th Pro Fans Showcase. Pull My Hair Back, co-written and co-produced by Junior Boys‘ Jeremy Greenspan, eschews the bloat and overly-saccharine nuances of modern pop in pursuit of raw, breathy vamping. It speaks to Lanza’s restrained but ever-present personality—-she knows how to work a room while still maintaining poise.
The same can be said for opener Running in the Fog‘s Amanda Harper. The San Franciscan pulls from 90s R&B and jazz with a keen reverence for synths and velvety vocals. This show will serve as her official record release party for her debut EP Silver, out via Father/Daughter.
Also supporting is the Bay Area’s Shock, the electronic pop project of Dan Judd of Sorcerer/Windsurf, Terri Loewenthal of Rubies, and Michael Taras.
Tickets are available here via Eventbrite for $10. Check out Jessy’s newest single, “Strange Emotion” below.
