The high-energy, high-volume duo Death From Above made an immediate splash upon their debut in 2004 with You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine. Bassist/synth player Jesse Keeler and drummer/vocalist Sebastien Grainger both hailed from Toronto, where they met and formed DFA in 2001. The summer of 2014 saw them release their first single in nine years, "Trainwreck 1979," which was quickly followed in the autumn by their second album, The Physical World.
Without a guitarist -- or any other bandmember for that matter — DFA 1979 were free to push their rhythmic sound as far as it would go, and they eventually arrived at a severely overdriven rush of punk, hard rock, and dance music influences held together with high volume. After issuing a few initial singles, they released "You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine" in 2004 and never looked back, touring alongside such high-profile bands as Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age and generally making a sweaty, shirtless racket wherever they went.
