In case you aren’t familiar with T Bird and The Breaks, they have been a long time Austin favorite, performing at huge festivals like ACL and Fun Fun Fun Fest and selling out Continental Club, Mohawk, etc. for the past few years. Nationally they have toured with Galactic, toured the country themselves and are playing Festivale International in Louisiana for the second time this year.
T Bird and The Breaks have been turning naysayers on their head when people ask what an “Austin band” sounds like, combining the forces of funk, hip hop and rock n’ roll into a fusion of garage soul and king sized retro beats. They are calling it CHUNK music. What is CHUNK music? A form of twenty-first century American music consisting of equal parts funk, hip-hop, and rock and roll characterized by its rough sonic quality and energetic, visceral performance.
“It’s like if Gil Scott Heron hooked up with The Ramones, Jay Electronica made music with The Meters, or the Violent Femmes worked with Nas mashed with what the typical T Bird listener would recognize” – T Bird, of T Bird and the Breaks.
Mainlining creativity into hours of studio time and production, T Bird and The Breaks are charging the gate bringing CHUNK music from the underground to your doorstep in 2012.
