“…we can recommend its sunny, buzzing bass and bicycle-friendly theme as pretty favorable…”
I Guess I’m Floating:
”…a darker/heavier sound with glitchy synths and forceful beats to boot – not to mention they’ve crafted a chorus as catchy as it is locomotive…”
Body Language is the ass shaking combination of Grant Wheeler & Matt Young graced by the soul styling’s of Ms. Angelica Bess. PLUS Ian Chang on drums of Mickey Factz fame.

Who Is Body Language!?
Busy saving the city from the brick wall arm crossing and the casual head nods, Brooklyn’s own Body Language has risen from the DIY venue basements armed with the kinetic dynamite you would expect from the name.
Originally coaxed to Brooklyn by fellow party-throwers, CassetteNYC and Percussionlab, Body Language quickly found a welcome soapbox from which they could yell loud and clear. Armed with synths, vocoder, glockenspiel, percussion, and three graceful voices, Body Language found themselves in demand at local events and parties. That demand extended beyond their own entity as a band, and they appeared as a live back up to Theophilus London dressed as ‘the Lovers’. Body Language also served as production collaborators with Passion Pit for the inception of their debut LP, Manners. Body Language cut their teeth in the remix department, appearing on Passion Pit’s “Chunk of Change” EP with a shimmering rendition of Sleepyhead (Landau Wake Up Mix) and Machinedrum’s “Late Night Operation” EP featuring Theophilus London. Seeking to up the ante on their 2008 performances, the trio joined forces with Mickey Factz/T. London backing drummer, Ian Chang, during the turn of this year. The resulting quartet made what seemed already a locomotive electronic outfit into a sonic freight train of a crossover indie act.
These four body linguists are currently drafting up a five-track demo based on songs that for now, exist only in their live performances.
