+++ PERDIX RELEASE SCHEDULED FOR SPRING 2104 +++

“Vensaire contain multitudes. The Brookyln five-piece flip influences like Birdman flips keys, mixing Greek mythology with Japanese influences and a hint of Norman McLaren’s “Pas De Deux”. — Noisey

“Akin to a jigsaw puzzle, Vensaire is assembled from jagged, oblong, and often eccentrically shaped pieces: influences range from the sweeping sounds of traditional Chinese music, to the soothing voice of Billie Holiday, to the spastic and stuttered beats of Chicago footwork, to the stories that accompany psychedelic folk music.” — Interview Magazine
