“We make music for people who are tired of clichés and predictable formats,” the band comments on its self-described technoblues genre. “With each record, we try to capture that elusive rebellious youthful spirit. ‘August’ was recorded in our DIY studio and released during on of our street performances. We believe that our music, and this song in particular, have a long way to go around the world.”
INTELLIGENCY mixes techno with rock’n’roll, jazz, and blues, with their latest music crystalizing their self-described technoblues genre.
