People Museum is a pop-art, electronic band started by Jeremy Phipps and Claire Givens in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans, LA in 2016. Inspired by afro-beat, hip-hop, choral, and marching band music, People Museum has formed a sound that could only come from the eclectic corners of Louisiana. Created with the intention of bringing nature to the future, People Museum combines the brass-filled past with the synthesizer heavy, progressive underground of New Orleans.
'I Could Only See Night' is a collection of songs made during quarantine in 2020, in addition to songs created in the first months of the formation of People Museum in 2016. It is a contemplation on our past, how we are making sense of where we have ended up, and learning to be more malleable with our visions of the future. With these songs, People Museum tries to light a way out of what have been some very dark times and open a space for the listener to reflect, dance, or feel joy.
