Tonstartssbandht Head To NZ For Three Shows

Tuesday 21st October, 2014 11:49AM

Familial duo Tonstartssbandht (pronounced tahn- starts-bandit) are heading to New Zealand for three shows in January. The Florida born brothers, Andy and Edwin White, have been carving out a name for themselves of late with their telepathic sibling jams, which have been put to tape on recent release Overseas but should be seen live to experience their full psychedelic glory. The duo's trip to these shores comes of the back of a December sojourn through Asia and Australia and will see Andy (who is also Mac DeMarco's new guitarist) welding his 12-string Danelectro, while brother Edwin takes to the skins and tubs. Here's the details...


Wednesday 7th January, Dux Live, Christchurch
Thursday 8th January, Meow, Wellington
Friday 9th January, Cassette Nine, Auckland

And here's '5FT7', which is featured on the soundtrackl for James Franco's film Palo Alto...


Psychedelic wig-outs, Tonstartssbandht will bring their prodigious musicianship to Asia, Australia, and New Zealand this December and January!

Brothers Andy and Edwin White are notable musicians in their own right – Andy, for some, is better known as Mac DeMarco’s new guitarist, while Edwin for his solo project Eola. However together, the Floridian brothers are Tonstartssbandht (pronounced tahn- starts-bandit), producing self-proclaimed “psychedelic boogie rock”.

Their sound inevitably grows in a live setting as two brothers blaze through super the tight long-form jams. Edwin’s driving percussion never drops a beat, while Andy creates luscious and expansive sounds on his 12-string Danelectro, melding perfectly with the duo’s angelic vocal harmonies. They navigate their souls and psyches on stage, embracing the sense of urgency, pain, and ecstasy in the human experience and impulsiveness too. 

Describing his performance process to Interview Magazine, Andy states: “I will sometimes just sit down and let some technical aspect of my set-up, like a certain effect or a sort of reaction I’m getting from the route of my signal... inspire something spontaneous.”

This approach has taken the band repeatedly throughout Russia, Europe and North America, and it will finally see them in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand for the first time ever!

Described by Ad Hoc as a “once-in-a-lifetime band the first time you see them. And, well, also the second, and third time, and so on,” Tonstartssbandht is a tour not to be missed!
