The Imprints are a live dance music duo consisting of Willow Stahlut and Linden Lester. With the pulsating feel of electronic music and the raw live energy of violin and drum kit, The Imprints are known for their slow building, psychedelic tunes that are equally at home in front of a folk festival audience as they are on an electronic festival stage.
