yoo doo right (Montreal, Quebec) — Inspired by the pounding rhythmic improvisations found in krautrock, yoo doo right wed the browns and pinks of their guitar noise and synthesizer treatments through a wall of sound best described as a car crash in slow motion.
Originating in Houston Texas, SECRET SANDS is an noir organic electronics band formed by two deep rooted musicians, djs + curators of music, art and culture: Markos Grave (millennial grave, psychic claw, ceeplus bad knives) and Damon Allen (refuse to fall, blueprint,). Taking nods from the past yet bringing it all together into the NOW. Influences are noted to iconic and like minded bands such as Can, Neu, Kraftwerk, Suicide, Goblin, Bauhaus, Psychic TV, Cabaret Voltaire et al
Their live show brings together real time synth modulations, dissonant guitar workings, provoking vocals, surreal visual backings all backed by the beat of real time drum machine syncopation. Machines & Non-Machines working in unison.
Out the gate they were put on the big stage and have shared bills in support of world renown bands such as Youth Code, Drab Majesty, the Octopus Project, Holy Wave, The Warlocks, Bestial Mouths and more. On Dec. 18th, 2017 they were honored and performed an opening band/dj set in front of ten thousand + people at the award winning Day for Night Fest, directly before the headliner, the legendary APHEX TWIN.
