Busy saving the city from the brick wall arm crossing and the casual head nods, Brooklyn’s own Body Language has risen from the DIY venue basements armed with the kinetic dynamite you would expect from the name. Their original music was born from weekly dance party remixes crafted by Grant Wheeler and Matt Young, and graced by the soul stylings of Ms. Angelica Bess.
Originally coaxed to Brooklyn by fellow party-throwers, CassetteNYC and Percussionlab, Body Language quickly found a welcome soapbox from which they could yell loud and clear. Armed with synths, vocoder, glockenspiel, percussion, and three graceful voices, Body Language extend beyond their own entity as a band, appearing under the moniker ‘The Lovers’ as a live back up to Theophilus London. Body Language also served as production collaborators with Passion Pit for the inception of their debut LP, Manners. Seeking to up the ante on their performances, the trio joined forces with Mickey Factz/T. London backing drummer, Ian Chang, during the turn of last year. The resulting quartet made what seemed already a locomotive electronic outfit into a sonic freight train of a crossover indie act.
