Hello, DangerKatts! Welcome to Episode VIII of MAKERS, where I speak with artists who make and shape culture! This week, I welcome musician/songwriters Alexx Calise and Dennis Morehouse — aka Batfarm — to the MAKERS stage!
Alexx Calise is an introspective lyricist and “harmony machine,” and Dennis Morehouse is a masterful arranger and sound manipulator. Batfarm is a two-piece alternative rock band whose sound can be best described as “darkedelic.” Music has always been the constant and the bond for this powerful duo, and you can see their love for each other and their undeniable chemistry on stage and in person. The two even share joint custody of their cat, Bingo, who is often the subject of their promotional posters and videos. Batfarm have released their first EP, IN THE BELFRY with longtime friend, Ultimate Studio’s Charlie Waymire. Combining Alexx’s grunge and blues influences with rich, choral soundscapes and Dennis’s love of industrial, funk, and psychedelic music, Batfarm creates a sound that is like everything and nothing at once.
On this week’s show, we discuss the course of Batfarm’s career and focus on their newest release, the music video for their single, SNAKE! Produced by Alexx and Dennis at Batfarm HQ, and featuring an on-screen performance by MAKERS alum Andie K of The Key of F! Check out the video below to learn all about it!
And here is Batfarm’s brand-new video, SNAKE!
The following are some photos that I took of the Batfarm duo during a video shoot for their single, GET OUT.
Until next time, enjoy the music, DangerKatts!
