Known for their rhythmic sensibility and curious melody, the quintet weave together a futuristic soundsphere where electronic wind instruments, drums, electric bass, synthesizers and turntables combine with Pollock-like abandon, creating a style that while heavy on groove has enormous depth and intrigue.
The band's third studio album, 'T(h)reats', takes inspiration from a series of explosive live shows in 2019 and is a reaction to the current situation we find ourselves in; art and music can be a treat in these strange and uncertain times. "After hours of talking, philosophizing and fantasizing about what the new approach of the record could be, nothing concrete came up. Then we just started making music to see where we'd end up like we've always done. As a result, in this day and age, with this group of people ... this is what happened," says the band.
From the warped, off-beat rhythms of 'Cigogne' and harmonic weirdness of 'Honu' to the deep space funk of 'Cumulus', where mutated drum patterns and vivid atmospherics loop together in a bold adventure into sound, STUFF. flex their muscular rhythm across 'T(h)reats', pushing the sound in to new dimensions. Elsewhere, 'OB499' is a mesmeric mass of dark chords and uneasy bleeps while 'Kwibus' is a skittish fusion of stuttered beats and ambient distortions.
