GAUNTLET HAIR
SQUEAKY LOBSTER

VRIJDAG / VENDREDI / FRIDAY • 24 FEB • 20:00 • 8€

GAUNTLET HAIR, a Denver-based duo, founded by best pals Craig and Andy, make danceable avant-pop music. While they’ve definitely got some Animal Collective vocal influences, their blissful, pounding drum (machine) beats call more to mind the visceral thrill of Sleigh Bells. Throw in guitars that range from shoegaze to post-punk, and you’ve got one hell of an energetic and enjoyable hodgepodge. Fans of Foals and Battles should check this out without further ado!

Hailing from the Belgian capital of Brussels, SQUEAKY LOBSTER is known to his mother as Laurent and used to play bass in rock and jazz bands. Nowadays however you’re more likely to find him pushing buttons on stage ensuring the system in turn pumps out his heady concoctions of chest-pummelling bass and skittering beats. Mind you having said that he can still be found playing bass in the band South of No North, who have released an album on Belgian label Humpty Dumpty/ Squeaky Lobster keeps things close to home having released all his material on another Belgian label, Vlek records, also based in Brussels. It is in fact on Vlek that Squeaky Lobster took flight (huhu, flying lobster) first with a split 7” alongside Russian producer Lapti – AMAI #2/4 – and in 2011 with a solo 10” release titled Will-O-The-Wisp EP.
