Freak folk musician Cime, based out of Southern California, has been putting together an entirely unique approach to the genre, syncretizing the abrasive textures of the underground & old alternative scenes with rich and varied Latin stylings.

Their debut album, The Independence of Central America Remains an Unfinished Experiment, released on July 1st on all streaming platforms as well as on a physical CD. Within a month of the albums' release, Cime reached nearly 200 monthly listeners and 1200 total album streams on Spotify and launched a small tour which coincided with them headlining a hardcore show in Las Vegas on July 17.

Continuing this momentum, Cime is releasing two live singles recorded from this headlined performance in September, booking more shows from across Southern California & beyond from October to December, releasing shirts & cassettes, and even getting back into the studio to begin recording their next exciting project.
