Taking their name from a song by New York No Wave artists DNA, BLONDE REDHEAD began playing and rehearsing in New York in the early 1990s, drawing inspiration from the city’s squalling underground scene, from movie soundtracks, everywhere they could.
From their first combustive, dissonant record produced by Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) to the hypnotic, rapturous songwriting of self-produced 23 the band have created an impressive 7 albums. Their live sets see them combining spare otherworldliness and bittersweet tension as they deliver blurred strings, magical chimes, dark guitar washes, multidimensional rhythms and rich bass lines, think somewhere between Serge Gainsbourg and The Cocteau Twins meets My Bloody Valentine.
DEVASTATIONS have been praised for their gothic detailing and subtle use of instrumental colouration (harmonium, optigan, rhythm box, keyboards, strings, et. al). The band earned a reputation as well-refined miserablists and classic-minded balladeers, specialists in the sub-genre known as orch-pop.
HOLY FUCK are a modern electronic dance act who eschew modern technology. Their lo-tech battery operated keyboards and toys, manipulated and distorted, create live frenetic energy, with pop and techno classics harnessing the element of surprise and earning critical acclaim.
