The Metermaids are a duo that teeters on the edge of multiple genres. Mixing elements of hip-hop, expansive songwriting, slick pop instrumentals and exceptional lyrics, the duo creates imaginative songs that push and warp boundaries.
On their latest effort, Nightlife in Illinoise EP, Metermaids take a bold step into the realm of mashups. Following in the footsteps of Girl Talk and Dangermouse, Sentence and Swell decided to mix two radically different pieces of music. In Nightlife in Illinoise, the duo remix songs from Sufjan’s Stevens’s critically acclaimed album Illinoise with beats and a cappellas from the Metermaid’s debut album Nightlife.
