Does It Offend You, Yeah?

Posted in MusicWorld on August 16, 2006

Does It Offend You, Yeah? is the MySpace band du jour. Delivering some twisted robot rock, DIOYY’s music is a total assault on your eardrums. Unsigned and without a record release, the popularity of DIOYY seems to be spreading like wildfire solely on their MySpace page, word of mouth and the trading of a few mp3s. This is viral marketing’s wet dream. With only four tracks up on MySpace, it’s surprisingly difficult to choose what to write about. All their tracks sound like Daft Punk totally mutilated. Like the robots are malfunctioning and throwing sparks. Influenced by Justice, Daft Punk, Mr Oizo, Alter Ego… they never seem like an imitation, but rather like they should be filed along side. Glitchy synth, ripped apart, Does It Offend You, Yeah? won’t stay unsigned for long. In 2007, you’ll be saying you knew them when.
