The nonsensically named We Have Band
are a high energy dirty disco trio. Punchy bass and dance-hall worthy grooves are what they are known for, full of in your face beats and complex vocal layering. Their usual schtick made an acoustic performance a bit of an enygma to us; we didn't know what to expect from these rave-channeling popsters. However, their dancey rock is akin to the Bloc Parties of the world, and like so, they are the band behind their dizzy electro-parts. And like a band, they can take it down to just an acoustic guitar, a tambourine, and a shaker and still get the punch out. First number "Centerfolds and Empty Screens" is a nice little slow pop ballad, and they follow it up nicely with "WHB," a song that works really well stripped down but has hints of the bands preoccupations with chaotic vocals and driving hooks.
We Have Band just played CMJ and may finally avoid being an elusive search engine target. Catch the full performance right here on Baeble. - Joe Puglisi
