Gang Gang Dance
WebsiteGang Gang Dance
On its 2008 album Saint Dymphna, Gang Gang Dance really upped the “dance.” The experimental art-rock band had gotten down before, but its arty rhythms and percussive thumps often drifted into ethereal atmospherics, taking the vibe with them. But as the years go on, Gang Gang Dance has only gotten more focused and forceful, making for a more cohesive sound and a live show that’s one of the best—and certainly most interesting—in New York. “Mindkilla,” from the band’s latest, Eye Contact, furthers that assertion along with a rock-solid groove, frantic electronic bleeps and slashes, and singer Liz Bougatsos’ untamed wail, which calls upon Tegan And Sara’s childish coo, roughs up the edges, and sends it hurtling over the music.
