Toronto-based art-disco/post punk/electro quartet AUS!Funkt have premiered their new single ‘Psychosomatic Twitch‘.
The song is taken from their brand new EP of the same name, out today. Get it here.
The band’s words: “From a dilapidated and severely overutilized Dadaist kitchen, comes our new EP Psychosomatic Twitch. from industrial funk to psycho-jazz, from losers to leaders, it’s all out now.“
“3 new tracks dug up from the early days of the pandemic and the deep recesses of our consciousness. As we exfoliate our brains we welcome in new glitches to the body, mind, and system. Change is inevitable, but the outcome is not.”
Stream it below.
AUS!Funkt started off conceptually as a post-punk project but in the process, they embraced the elements of electronica, dub, disco, garage rock and blues while maintaining grittiness, simplicity and repetitiveness.
The project went through many line-up changes and musicians before finding its core members. Portuguese musician Hugo Frutuoso from UK band Desert Dusk moved to Canada and joined in 2016 as the bass player and first core member of the band, guitarist and vocalist Evan Henderson discovered the band a year later through an unusual Craigslist post that listed the band’s diverse influences from Fela Kuti to Suicide.
