Vensaire, a five piece Brooklyn band, calls their own genre of music “instinctelectual – bridging the gap between the intellectual pursuit of conceptual music with the unthinking pull of the visceral.” Utilizing acoustic and electronic elements, they pull sounds from the ether into a swirling sort of folk psychedelia akin to a mellower pre-pop Animal Collective, all in the context of a fascination with Japan. From their artwork to their live shows, aesthetic choices seem to be nearly as important as musical ones.
