#CIRCUSSXSW: Body Language
by Gregorio Vincent
Coming from Brooklyn to join us in Austin the quartet, Body Language. Fresh off the success of last year’s Social Studies LP—which earned the approval of everyone from NPR to The New York Times to The Guardian, who compared the breakout release to early Madonna, the indie disco of Prelude Records and “CSS doing an impression of Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band”—Body Language have returned with a new EP (Grammar, due out through OM’s Lavish Habits imprint on Sept…ember 18th) and a full-length disc that’s set to drop in early 2013. Both of which streamline the Brooklyn quartet’s restless pop experiments with a future-shocked blend of soul and R&B.
Or as multi-instrumentalist/producer Grant Wheeler puts it, “Our world still exists in an indie-disco bubble; we’re just pushing the limits of every genre to a point where the bubble’s about to pop.”
You can check out Body Language live in Austin at “The Circus” at Empire Garage on March 15.
