Gang Gang Dance+Sun Araw


Musically speaking, Gang Gang Dance concerts are often as unpredictable as their records, which meander along a course of squeaky synth parts, echoey cymbalism, and frontwoman Liz Bougatsos’s worldbeat-inspired glossolalia. This primal quality—something they’ve passed off as experimentalism even though their most recent polyrhythmic musical polyglots follow some algorithm—this fluid trait is the reason they’re able to play three nights in Brooklyn at different venues, beginning with tonight’s concert. Plus, it’s been a little over a year since they released their last LP, Eye Contact, which might have given them enough time to discover some unexpected new sound to exploit.
