KONARK UND BONARK
When a band is formed with members of The Van Jets, Future Old People Are Wizards, Drums are for Parades, The Arquettes, and The Antler King, it goes without saying this combination of great musicians of diverse musical backgrounds grabs your attention. Their incredible live performances proved this band is much more than a gimmick. Dressed in white hazmat suits with white chalked faces, these artists look ghoulishly freaky. Their podium presence looks otherworldly, where weirdness is set as the norm -- which is exactly and completely in line with their music. The four guardians of Dante's inferno bring an insane blend of all types of challenging music. Kraut rock, math rock, sludge, post punk, and noise are shaken up, and presented in insanely groovy way.
