Never miss another 'Deerhoof' show
Crazy electro-pop from California. Fronted by the bitter-sweet vocals of Satomi Matsuzaki, Deerhoof are the kind of band who deliberately lull listeners into a false sense of security, by slowly introducing a melody and then ripping it away before it ever takes hold. Backed by meandering synths and eighties dance-pop guitars the group have become a favourite amongst fans of the art-electro genre. ‘…the music of Deerhoof is anchored by sweet melodies and hypnotic rhythmic movement. Though it veers in and out of pop territory, the California-based quartet is just as betrothed to chance and intuition as their less listenable counterparts.’ - PopMatters
Deerhoof tour dates
Brooklyn-based BUKE (byook) & GASE (gace) are Arone Dyer on the "buke" (a self-modified six-string former baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez on the "gase" (a guitar-bass hybrid of his own creation). Both of them play double duty, also mobilizing a small army of foot percussion.
These instruments are then filtered through various pedals, amplifiers and homemade inventions to create a surprisingly complex sound. Dyer's supermelodic vocal lines weave through the beautiful yet unwieldy musical matter, balancing light and dark, calamity and control.
Their musical multi-tasking makes for live shows that are visually unexpected and sonically explosive.
