Watch These Psykers Rehearsals

New Music, Videosadmin1 Comment

With loads of strange MIDI sound effects, synths, and a live drum kit, the recently formed Psykers are on their way to producing a twisted, enthralling, and electronic monster of some sort. The handful of video rehearsals they've pulled together so far on YouTube are pretty impressive. They've even put in the effort to grab a few dancers to perform along with their noisy, textured, and groove-laden jams.

The beginning to these videos is the song "Battleship," and it's a for an awesomely foreign flavor to it. However, the third and untitled rehearsal video, I think, will grab the attention of either Death Grips or dubstep fans--maybe both. Lightning bolt? Enjoy!
