Tonstartssbandht (USA) tour New Zealand in January 2015

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 the two brothers blaze through super 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.

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 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!

“The best way to experience Tonstartssbandht isn't by clicking around their various releases - it's to hear what the two brothers create in a live setting.” - Pitchfork

“Their telepathic sibling jam instincts turned the packed room into a shaking jello mold of sweaty flesh” - Noisey
