CMJ was all about TAYISHA BUSAY last week! The glamorous electro-dance band will be your new obsession, especially if you adore the likes of Of Montreal and Scissor Sisters. Last week on BAEBLE MUSIC, the band premiered the debut video for “Nothing’s Happening,” off of Focus/Virus, which came out on October 18th. The video was directed by Thu Tran, who does work for IFC’s Food Party and visuals for Girl Talk. Are you impressed yet? We sure as hell are.
The band made two appearances at CMJ last week, and are one of five of the hand picked SESAC’s NYC Rising finalists. Along with an appearance on theAndrew and Andrew Show on East Village Radio, TAYISHA BUSAY is ready to take over the world…and your town is next. Check out the recently released tour dates, and be sure to go and see what this party is all about. Bring your own glitter!
TAYISHABUSAY is Tessa Greenberg, Ariel Sims and Brandon Levesque. Self taught and self-produced, the 3 members of the Brooklyn electro-dance band TAYISHABUSAY have created a place for themselves in the music scene where they’ve been every bit as bold and relentless as they’ve wanted to be.Their debut EP in 2010, Shock-Woo! gained them a cult following with their single “WTF You Doin’ in My Mouth,” as well as a hefty nod from the LGBTQ community.
Having toured with MEN (JD Samson of Le Tigre) and shared the stage with artists such as Andrew W.K., they display a grand expertise of showmanship with their use of choreographed dancing, hand-crafted props, home-made lighting effects, and always tons of glitter and confetti.
TAYISHABUSAY has toured the east coast and Canada, spreading their message of positive encouragement and over-the-top “do it because you want to”attitude, complete with high kicks, big-synth sounds, and enticing dance-floor beats that have won over club-goers and indie-rockers alike. Early in their career, and much before Lady Gaga or Ke$ha hit the scene, they earned a reputation for toting copious amounts of glitter, as seen in their first music video in which they drink and puke the sparkly substance.Their videos have been featured in homepage spots on websites such as Gawker.com and the popular queer network, Logo.TV.
