This is nuts!
It seems like everything has already been done, and a thousands times over. But god bless the Internet, because almost daily, we find ourselves saying, "This is the weirdest shit I've ever seen in my life."
Today's title goes to AquaSonic, the world's first completely underwater band. All their instruments, microphones and live performances happen completely 'unda da sea.'
Music is one of the reasons we get out of bed in the morning, but we can't quite put on finger on how we feel about this new genre of water rock.
Somehow, this reminds us of a nightmare we had once, where our teeth fell out and we couldn't get out of the bathtub.
In a recent interview, the band explains what the hell they were smoking when they came up with this.
AquaSonic is the culmination of the artists’ nine-year research efforts and countless experiments in close collaboration with a team of deep-sea divers, instrument makers and brilliant scientists – people driven by the same urge to break new grounds and challenge existing paradigms. As a result, the team has developed a number of highly specialized subaqueous instruments including an underwater organ or hydraulophone, a crystallophone, a rotachorda (a brass chordophone inspired by the old folk instrument hurdy gurdy), a setiphone, consisting of amplified note bars and a special technique for singing underwater. The result is a concert experience out of the ordinary; a deep dive into a compelling visual universe and a new world of sound.
If that teaser trailer above didn't scare the hell out of you, here's their hit single performed live:
Oh, people in Denmark. What will they think of next?
