The Familiar


The Familiar is the alternative electropop duo of Ruth Mirsky and Mads Martinsen. The Familiar's music captures the haunting icy rhythms of the Arctic Circle and the pulse of NYC. It's the conjuring of strangers--polar opposites who find inspiration in the uncanny darkness of winters with no sun, the unyielding lightness of summers with no night, and a city that never sleeps. The Familiar is magical and modern; intimate and lush soundscapes paired with pop hooks without Mirsky and Martinsen ever working together in the same room.
