Don’t let the name fool you for thinking that they are just a band of b-grade disc jockeys because Gang Gang Dance are far from it. From Brooklyn, New York, Gang Gang Dance have been actively involved in the experimental and art scenes since 2005. With their eclectic influences spanning from tribal beats to 80s techno, trip-hop to lo-fi pop, they are perhaps producing some of the most exciting, genre-convulsing, music this year. Having just been signed to Warp records, you can expect their new record Saint Dymphna (due for release on October 20) to indeed be an exercise in musical ritual and eerie surprises.
