Weeed features a quartet of best friends jammin’ on double drum sets, electric bass, guitar, flute, vocal harmony and ambient live looping. Their blend of heavy psychedelic wildness, trance and improvisation draws influence from musical traditions around the world as well as the sensuous landscape they call home in the Pacific Northwest.
Since 2009, they have produced a number of albums, extensively toured the U.S. and shared the stage with bands such as Acid Mothers Temple, Wand and Dead Meadow and have often been compared with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Fuzz and Pink Floyd.
Dreamdecay has long thrived on tension in their music. From their riotous 2012 debut Fern through 2013’s brooding N V N V N V, they’ve continually sought out new ways to push themselves sonically. On their latest record, YÚ, the band explores the feeling of being torn between two different cultures. The music reflects that, with distorted and mangled riffs that feel like they pull apart and away from each other.
