Who – !!! (pronounced chk, chk, chk.) Have fun trying to talk to anyone about that.
Where are they from? They’re pretty well travelled, with an interchangeable line-up, split between Sacramento, California, New York City and Portland, Oregon.
What do they sound like? Like Aphex Twin, Daft Punk and Tom Vek have gate crashed a student house party and gone overboard on the ‘special punch’.
Songs to get you started: Intensify ( Chk, Chik, Chick – 2000), Must Be The Moon (Myth Takes – 2007), The Most Certain Sure (Strange Weather, Isn’t It? – 2010), Except Death (Thr!!!er – 2013), Gonna Guetta Stomp (All You Writers/Gonna Guetta Stomp – 2015).
What are they doing now? !!! have a new album out. As If will be released on October 16 on Warp Records.
