Foot Village

Foot Village PR
As much wranglers of chaos as musicians, Los Angeles’ Foot Village have been exploring the limitless possibilities of drums for the past seven years. Neither drum circle nor rave inspired groovers, Foot Village orchestrates their four drum kits with kraut and punk sensibilities. The results are catchy and fun. Poppunk music from a world completely alien to ours. Front-woman, Citizen Grace Lee, is half wildcat, half banshee full of convulsion both lyrical and physical. Citizens Brian Kinsman, Dan Rowan, and Josh Taylor-Fantastic create a dense web of rhythms strung with tense, raw power.

Quicker to cite 90s trailblazers like Huggy Bear, The Melvins, and Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 as influences rather than anything labeled “noise”, Foot Village loves exploring new ways of delivering the true energy of rock. Live shows find Foot Village performing in the center of the audience, facing towards the center as well; an intentional geometry inspired by people that place their totem at the center of the village. This geometry helps include the audience as a vital part of the performance, allowing the relentless energy to directly travel in waves outward.

Foot Village have toured Europe three times and the US a countless amount. They have played two ATP fests and most recently toured with Avey Tare. All members of the band performed in the Boredoms for the BoaDrum88 event. Foot Village releases have appeared on labels such as Fat Cat, Not Not Fun, Too Pure, and Upset The Rhythm. ‘Make Memories’, their fourth album, comes out March 19th on Northern Spy.

Press

“…wholly unhinged and chaotically great album.” – Vice; 8/10

“Who would’ve thought that blunt drums and vocals could sound so fucking brutal? So fucking vital? But here it is. Anti-Magic is more crushing, musically and emotionally, than the work of any hardcore, metal or punk band I’ve heard in a long long time.” – Drowned In Sound; 8/10

“Best discovery [of ATP] Foot Village” – Guardian UK

Video interview on Pitchfork
