Data Animal is the second signing to Oliver Ackermann’s (A Place To Bury Strangers, Death By Audio) newly formed label, Dedstrange. Their over the top, endangered sound is a concoction of NYC’s No Wave legends Suicide being dragged across the floor by Tokyo noise provocateurs Merzbow while sweating your eyeballs out in an underground Berlin bunker. Founded between Germany and New Zealand in the midst of a global pandemic, the group is headed up by Mitchell James O’Sullivan (Aporia, Cynthia, Full Moon Fiasco) and Takumi Yanai (The Schizophonics, The Cavemen). Peter Magnun, owner of 8mm Music and Synästhesie Festival described them as ’Hell’s Real Angels – these kids sound like some sort of fuzz cyborg death trip‘. With growing notoriety after a blistering performance at 2021’s SXSW, Data Animal is the Techno/Rock n’ Roll group every replicant and freak worldwide have been waiting for.
