MEN, the Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consists of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O’Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Tami Hart. ‘Simultaneously’ is out July 18th MEN – Simultaneously (Lesands Remix) by iamsoundrecords
The band focus on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music.
Their music speaks of issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise and the demand for liberties through lyrical content and an inventive, high energy stage show.
Kicking off with the lyrically-charged “Life’s Half Price,” MEN’s debut album ‘Talk About Body’ showcases the band’s uncanny ability to blend multiple influences, from the funky electronic of “Make It Reverse” to the guitar-laden dancefloor funk of “Boom Boom Boom,” all the while maintaining the lyrical bite that has made MEN such an exciting proposition.
The album also features debut single “Credit Card Babies” and second single “Off Our Backs” – an addictive slice of electro-pop brilliance, a sure-fire, 21st century pop anthem – with its soaraway chorus (“I’m/A tease/We’re flipping can’t you see”) and instantly memorable melody.
