The Octopus Project
Austin-bred indietronica outfit the Octopus Project know how to mix mathy rhythms with haunting synths for seriously compelling songs. With a repertoire of mostly instrumentals, the quartet proves that you don't need vocals to get melody-heavy songsespecially when a theremin is routinely used to amp up their twitchy psych pop songs. Periodically swapping instruments, the Octopus Project don't know how to put on a boring, un-bizarre show.
