If albums received superlatives, !!! (Chk Chk Chk)'s Shake The Shudder would be crowned "Most Likely To Make You Stay Out Dancing 'till 6 a.m." The funk punk group's recent release represents everything the New York City natives stand for—fantastic bass lines, hard-hitting lyrics, and productions sent from above. Don't believe us? Press play on any of the LP's 12 tracks at your next party and watch what happens to the dance floor.
If you've seen the four-piece live, you also know how they get down onstage. Frontman Nic Offer lets his freak flag fly in the best way possible, owning the stage with each hip swivel, shoulder pop, and shimmy shake.
What more appropriate way, then, to chat with Offer about the band's new album than keep it aaaaall things dance-related. Check out the interview below, then make sure to track !!! on Bandsintown to see them on this run, which will be hitting cities across the country through the end of July.
We just started playing "The One 2" and it has been really fun to play. The drops are f%*^#ng huge.
Jazz hands are pretty basic but looks amazing if you use it right. Try spinning jazz hands, or jazz hands circling all the way up around your head, so the people in the cheap seats can see you.
I don't know that I'm able to pull off what those girls can do.
It's always a tough call whether it's Madrid or Barcelona. They each think they're better than the other, but I have a hard time telling who actually goes harder. I love them both.
You won't think about how the heels hurt once you start dancing.
I think the Bankhead Bounce looks pretty good. I'll work on it.
I'll tell you what, last weekend, I had to dance in the sun in my jeans and it f%*^#ng sucked. I wanted my shorts so I recommend those, but it's also good to have something you feel like you look great in. It's fun to have something you can kinda play with, use as a prop, like a cape, long jacket, flowy dress, or something with fringe hanging.
Well, I thought Nicole Fayu looked great in the dancing is the best revenge video, but Laetitia has got the sweet French accent...I think I'll go with her. Take her out and sit by the river, stare at the skyscrapers, and wish on stars on something.
