The Infinite Daisy Chains are a band that have been making a lot of noise in the DC music scene lately. The band is actually made up of a married couple, Ian Dandridge and Kristina Westernik-Dandridge, who met at a rehearsal a long time ago. Although the venture is new, they are both well established and trained musicians who have been creating music for years back in the DC Metropolitan area. Kristina specializes in the violin, vocals, and Ableton push, whilst Ian is the guitarist of the duo. As well as the pair boasting years of experience in playing synthesizers and drum machines, Ian and Kristina produce for clients such as splice.com, a music production platform for millions of creators.
Together with the team at Day Off Recordings, they released their latest single, “Moreno Beach Club,” on September 18th, 2020. Progressing from rhythm and chanting to organized chaos and an epic guitar solo climax, the husband and wife duo show their instrumental prowess in this single release. This song was mixed and mastered by Sam Ford, who in the past has engineered the likes of Jay Watson of Tame Impala and Pond.
We can understand why they picked Sam Ford to engineer their track, as this track reminds us of many various Tame Impala and Pond songs (specifically “Paint Me Silver” By Pond). The solo towards the end of the track brings an incredible sensation to the listener as the track ends with him/her wanting more. Check out the track below, and you’ll see what we mean.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
