Millions of people have heard the infectious tunes of Bitter:Sweet via their debut album The Mating Game, as one of their many friends on MySpace, or in their favorite movies and TV shows. Thousands of you have heard their new album, too: Trouble is getting a lot of airplay at Community Radio!
See what all the fuss is about when Bitter:Sweet returns to Club Congress on Wednesday, August 20th in a KXCI benefit concert. Tickets are $10 at the door (21 and over show) and include sets spun by KXCI deejays Trinidad, Falcotronik and Corbin Dooley.
Bitter:Sweet's trademark sound is an intoxicating blend of Shana Halligan's melodically sweet-and-sexy vocals paired with the duo's sassy genre-bending production work. In 2000, Kiran Shahani emerged on the scene as a founding member of The Supreme Beings of Leisure. Signed to Chris Blackwell’s Palm Pictures, the band sold over a quarter million records worldwide. Together, Kiran and Shana have created Bitter:Sweet, one of the most seductive interpretations of retro swank and hot beats since James Bond was Sean Connery.
Many of the hottest television shows and movies have used Bitter:Sweet’s music, including Samantha Who, Grey’s Anatomy, Nip/Tuck, Entourage, Desperate Housewives, The Devil Wears Prada, Men In Trees, Brothers & Sisters, and many, many more.
They were awarded the Best Rock/Pop Album of 2006 at the Independent Music Awards. They are consistently ranked on top 20 of iTunes Electronic albums chart and in Billboard’s Top 50 Electronic albums chart. Their hometown Los Angeles Times pegged Bitter:Sweet as one of the top 10 Buzz Bands of 2006.
