Asobi Seksu - Japanese for ""playful sex""
Asobi Seksu was an American shoegaze/dream pop band based in New York City. Their music used a textured and effects-heavy vocal and guitar sound. The band primarily consisted of Yuki Chikudate (vocals, keyboards) and James Hanna (guitar, vocals).
A mainstay of premiere East Coast venues - including sold-out shows in New York - Asobi Seksu were a formidable live act. Perfectly executing both the rhythmic precision and saturated ethereal melodies of their first studio effort, delivering a brilliant live performance.
Never wasting a second, they blended pop sensibilities and poignant moments of melancholia with unexpected sonic explosions. The mainstream press has taken notice, with favourable reviews from the New York Press, Amplifier, The Village Voice, and the New York Times, who praised their:
“Blaring, shimmering, multi-layered guitars and well-made pop melodies, they were compared to My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, and Lush”
