The possibility in our electronic age is huge.
That’s what the bio for Keepaway says on Lefse Records. And it’s true.
So many of these electro bands can manipulate music in such a way that you never thought these sounds would be possible, and you never would have thought to create them. But someone has. And today we’re talking about Keepaway.
The Brooklyn-based trio is Mike Burakoff (“the sampling one”), Frank Lyon (drums) and Nick Nauman (guitar). They all like to sing. And they bring fresh sounds to samples, creating psychedelic “future pop” with big beats and catchy hooks that you can’t help but dance to.
The thing about these electro acts is – do they hold up live? In terms of Keepaway, I’ve heard they bring as much power and pop to their performances as they do in the album versions of their songs, so I’ll definitely be checking them out in the next month or so. They are playing Glasslands on April 30th with Tanlines and their EP release party is slated for May 18th at Mercury Lounge.
Take a listen to “Yellow Wings” on their debut EP Baby Style…
