"Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards create a stunning, forward-looking sound that charts a path for innovation in folk music." - PopMatters " . . .vocally superb . . . amazing talent with the fiddle" - Maverick "Like many of the best "folk" bands, this talented quartet is much more of an uncategorisable and dynamic force" - Americana UK ". . . their close and complex harmonies and imaginative arrangements signified the best of folk right now." - The Bluegrass Situation Expanding on the boundaries of what an indie-folk band can be, Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards take their extensive string music background, add their knowledge of folk and roots music, and incorporate an edgy pop sensibility to create their latest album, 'Bitter Better'. A stunning lesson in all the ways string instruments can be played - bowed, plucked, percussively - the album showcases Cortese and multi-instrumentalist producer Sam Kassirer (Lula Wiles, Lake Street Dive) striving to capture the most adventurous approach to each moment. The result is an album that incorporates dance-worthy foundational grooves, synth, and loops to push the boundaries of the genre.
