Anamanaguchi is a four-piece melodic, 8-bit rock band from Brooklyn, New York. Combining raw guitars and thrashing drums with a glitchy digital soundscape, they create a powerful, energetic sound that rests somewhere between organic and robotic. The band, started in 2003 by then 15-year-old Peter Berkman, released their debut "Power Supply" EP on the New York DIY label 8bitpeoples in 2006. In 2009 the lineup solidified with bassist James DeVito, Ary Warnaar on guitar & gameboy, and Luke Silas on drums and they released their second EP, "Dawn Metropolis."
Anamanaguchi embodies the triumph over youthful suburban boredom through house shows, pizza parties, and late night video game sessions with friends in the same way the Beach Boys did through cars, babes, and surfing.
Last summer, they released a series of singles for free download from their website, each complete with original frenetic, seizure-inducing animated cover art and an accompanying b-side.
They are hyped and ready to party.
