Bali Yaaah (Austin, TX) has a droning 60's psychedelic approach to 80's synth-pop. Think love child between Velvet Underground and Depeche Mode; a fusion of deep fuzzy organs, syncopated drum machines, dubbed out bass, haunting vocals, and searing guitars, this modern organ trio conjures an alluring wall of sound. Driven by band leader and organist Chris Brown, alongside guitarist Jonas Hodges and bassist Alan Uribe, the group evokes a seductive blend of dark synth-wave, and post punk art rock. Often described as “retro music from the future”, the group's influences stem from around the world with hints of African, Asian, and Latin rhythms providing the backbone to many of the group's familiar, yet foreign compositions. Fans of Clinic, LCD Soundsystem, The Black Angels, Arcade Fire, Gorillaz, and early Eno should take special notice.
