Harsh screeches, angelic choirs, mangled noises, and soaring strings.
WALLGRIN is the experimental pop project of Vancouver-based composer, improviser, vocalist and violinist Tegan Wahlgren. Drawing from an array of musical influences — including a background in fiddling and choral singing — Wallgrin’s sound moves between lush string-based orchestration, beat-driven pop and ornate vocal arrangements. Their spirited and raw live performances have led them to perform at BreakOut West, ArtsWells, Music on Main, Western Front and the Queer Arts Festival alongside artists such as Okkyung Lee, Holy Hum, Jenny Hval and Nicole Lizée. Wallgrin’s debut album Bird/Alien was released in 2018 on Heavy Lark Records.
