Infectious and spry post-punky tunes according to Pitchfork.Black Square is the debut album from Invada s newest signings - Toronto, Canada s experimental abstractionists DD/MM/YYYY. It s the by-product of months of van-confined wanderlust, inevitable maturity and growing comfort in the studio environment. A band that s forever changing and moving, Black Square doesn t deviate far from DD/MM/YYYY s origins, but this time there s an inherent seriousness not appearing on their earlier releases.The band are inclined to explore, open to all concepts, and are stubborn only with regards to a 'no-style' approach to music taking inspiration comes from the works of Frank Zappa, Melt Banana, and DADA art to video games.Call it punk-noise, math rock, whatever... one thing s certain. It s an urgent set of elastic songs - dramatic and tempered by healthy doses of irreverence making damn sure it s impossible to stand still. Beneath every noise mess, cool hooks call out to the attentive listener. This is art rock as you ve never known it - jagged diamondback guitars, '80s video game synthesisers, and drums that roll with all the punches of the discordant dreamy vocals. DD/MM/YYYY is a set of stainless steel knives perfect for cutting, slicing, dicing and even gnashing! say the band.And that s not all. Black Square is a swat-team style five-man workout with healthy jogs from one instrument to another, arrangement- swapping, and seemingly random walks on and off stage coming from an incessant, warrior-like approach to touring. Previous tours have paired the band with Crystal Castles, Don Caballero, sBACH, Japanther, as well as Video Hippos and has seen them crossing paths with Andrew WK, Wavves, Matt & Kim, No Age, Marnie Stern, Dan Deacon, Mika Miko, and Iggy Pop & The Stooges. It all looks set to continue with the band embarking on a UK tour this November.
