Bali Yaaah

Bali Yaaah has a droning 60's psychedelia approach to 80's synth pop, think love child between Velvet Underground and Depeche Mode. A fusion of deep fuzzy organs, syncopated drum machines, dubbed out bass, and growling guitars, this trio establishes an enticing wall of sound. Driven by band leader and organist Chris Brown (Space Invader Orchestra), complimented by guitarist Jonas Hodges (Blase Faire, X=X) and bassist Alan Uribe (Sub Oslo, Tacks, the boy disaster, and Charanga Cakewalk) together, the band evokes an alluring blend of dark synth-pop, and stoner rock. Rhythmically, the group's influences come from around the world. Hints of African, Asian, and Latin traditions provide the backbone to many of the group's familiar, yet foreign compositions. Their live performances have increasingly become spectacles of light and motion that meld sublimely with the band's music. Bali Yaaah is gearing up for their first EP release coming in March!
