Topanga is a four-way band from Bruges/Ghent, founded in 2012. Unexpected arrhythmics, schizophrenic counterparts and melodic hysterias give their music a contradictory contagiousness in which a reincarnated punk monster throws up itself. While the vocals scream deafeningly, the lead singer engages in a hugging contest with himself. With their hypnotic krautrock elements, heavy rhythmic explosions and gleaming grooves, they bring you danceable synth-punk-rock.
They have previously worked with Joris Verniest (Madensuyu, Sixth Metal) and Pascal Deweze (Metal Molly, Broken Glass Heroes, Gruppo Di Pawlowski) and performed in both squatting houses and concert halls, including Cactus Club, Charlatan, 4AD, Magasin 4, Trix Club.
"Oddball toytown keyboard refrains, flatulent bass and boppy riddims before a riot 'grrrl shouty chick' steps up - the keys get atonal and weirder and all in all it's great stuff – melt Banana meets Ut meets Huggy Bear – the keys really lift things coming in like cut price can via Craig Scanlon's work on The Man Whose Head Expanded... like this very much."by Bugbear booking R&R, (radio review, concert in The Hope And Anchor, London)
