Her Space Holiday

Recording as Her Space Holiday since 1996, Marc Bianchi creates sugarcoated dreamscapes floating alongside bitter-sweet narratives of life. He’s been featured in many of the industry’s top music magazines including Spin, Mojo, and DJ, has reached #2 on the CMJ charts (with The Young Machines for Mush) and has toured with some of the world’s top indie acts including Bob Mould, Bright Eyes, Arab Strap, and The Faint. Always challenging himself, Bianchi’s sound has morphed with every release, proving he is equally comfortable with intricate sampling and drum programming as he is building a track using live instruments and percussion. From his early output with NYC’s TigerStyle, his releases for London’s Wichita, and his work with Mush, Marc Bianchi’s constant evolution as a songwriter and arranger continues to enchant.

Putting some space between himself and the computer that has provided the basis for so much of his recent work, Marc Bianchi has taken the last two years to focus on what got him into music in the first place, writing connective songs and working out the layers of sound he hears in his head. The results are a new persona, XOXO, Panda, and the reinforcement of the feelings of personal and artistic freedom that drive his music. Loose and carefree arrangements of guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, shakers, glockenspiel, and drums lay the foundation for vocal storytelling sing-a-longs. XOXO, Panda And The New Kid Revival is a brilliant calling card for Her Space Holiday’s newly awakened alter-ego, and a watershed moment in his growth as a songwriter and performer.
