Hailing from the southwestern city of Fukuoka is the moshpit inducing post-punk quartet known as hyacca (pronounced hyakka). Their music is equal parts Bad Brains, My Bloody Valentine, Neu! and Tera Melos fusing together lightning speed punk with shoegaze soundscapes, krautrock rhythm and angular, mathy riffs. Add orgasmic changes in tempo, alien-like distortion effects, dual male/female screams and vocals and unrelenting raw power to spice the sonic maelstrom up even further. Noisy and aggressive but fiercely melodic and extremely danceable, hyacca sound great on CD but are tenfold more furious, fun and intense experienced live.
