Listen Up: Aabaraki, DanceShee

Call me crazy, but there is one huge element that seems to be missing from most of today’s music – the element of fun.

Unless your idea of a good time is smoking on Keisha or flailing around to annoying techno music, there’s not much fun to be found on the airwaves. Never fear, there is hope. Next time I’m in a grungy public bathroom I’m gonna write on the stall, “For a good time, call Aabaraki.”

Vocalist and keyboardist Akie Bermiss, guitarist Brian Forbes, bassist Ari Folman-Cohen and drummer Aaron Steele come from very diverse musical backgrounds but form a seamless unit. Aabaraki describes its sound as a mix of Gnarls Barkley and The Black Keys. I hear the similarities but it’s not fair to put these guys in a box – their style is truly unique.

Check out Aabaraki’s hilarious video “DanceShee” below. They’re making it fun to be a music fan again.
