Asobi Seksu was an American shoegaze / dream pop band based in New York City. Their music used a textured and effects-heavy vocal and guitar sound. The band primarily consisted of Yuki Chikudate (vocals, keyboards) and James Hanna (guitar, vocals). A mainstay of premiere East Coast venues - including sold-out shows in New York - Asobi Seksu were a formidable live act. Perfectly executing both the rhythmic precision and saturated ethereal melodies of their first studio effort, delivering a brilliant live performance.
