Abiku


Abiku (not to be confused with Steve Shelley's pre-Sonic Youth outfit, Strange Fruit/Abiku) are a co-ed duo who from Philadelphia, but currently residing in Baltimore. The duo brings two hardcores together: rave and punk. Shimmering keyboards straight off a 1987 techno track by Derrick May or Juan Atkins collide with Vincents furious screeches, bellows, and retches. Pretty little synth intros are obliterated by backdraft blasts of guitar. Tempos careen into the 200-bpm-and-up range. Read more on Last.fm

Pretty little synth intros are obliterated by backdraft blasts of guitar.

Tempos careen into the 200-bpm-and-up range. Songs top out at about a minute and a half. Its an exhilarating, if dizzying, noise, full of switchbacks and hairpin turns. The band states on their myspace that the best comparison they've got is "The Locust dryhumping controlled bleeding." (Italian Abiku): Abiku are a pop/shoegaze band from Grosseto (Tuscany, Italy) formed in 2009.

The band's lyrics are written and sung by Giacomo Barbagli, the rest of the band is composed of Stefano Campaga, Virna Angelini and Edoardo Lenzi. Technicolor is their debut album and it was preceded by the release of the singles "Vieni a vivere con me (Quando ti addormenti)" on November 5, 2011 and "Studio System Blues" on November 28, 2011. They've already published three EPs: Deriva, 999 and Lontana da qui. Read more on Last.fm.
