3421 Get the Party Started Tomorrow Night at Mercury Lounge

March 19th, 2013

Sometimes what you hear isn’t exactly what you think it is. Take the band 3421, out of the mountains of Haifa, Israel. At first they sound like a live DJ set. But if you listen a little closer, it becomes clear that what you’re hearing isn’t the product of loops and computers. Instead it’s a duo using drums, synths and vocals to make their own brand of high-energy, party-starting dubstep, drums and bass, and glitch. They’ve toured parts of Europe and even China, but now 3421 (above, performing “Sparks” for Anova Music) have come to America, and you can see them tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.
