Shake the Shudder are words to live by and ones that !!! fully embrace. There are always fears to be faced and new paths to forge, and those uncertainties never hold them back. They just propel them to jump in head first. For years !!! have run the dance band gambit and become New York City legends. From their start in Sacramento, to Brooklyn house party staples and Union Pool residencies, and now delighting festival stages from Primavera to FYF, they’ve cemented their place as part of New York’s live dance scene — while others have drifted into the history books. !!! continuously evolve and grow their sound album to album, deftly navigating through changes in scenes, thriving where others would have been crushed under the daunting nature of inevitably changing landscapes.
!!! are typically regarded as a live band, something you have to experience in the flesh to truly comprehend. While their live shows are something to behold, they underscores the sheer musicianship and songwriting that goes into recording their albums. It is a lot of hard work made to look easy. Songs from the record began popping up in sets last year, being worked on live and in the studio, and it is this dedication to their fans to create the best possible live and recorded experiences that drives them to get the best out of both. “Most of the songs on this record are based off of jams, and since we record every jam, most of the tracks here feature moments we actually recorded from those jams. Most artists have to dig through the crates to find that one sample nobody has used but we can sample ourselves having been playing this style of music for awhile now. As a band we try to play it the way the JBs would, as producers we try to mix it the way a DJ would.”
