Indie band Extra Arms, fronted by Taiwanese American Dave Yang, has been gaining “extra” attention lately. Based in New York, they’ve been creating great music for several years, but only recently have been getting wider play and much-deserved excellent reviews.
Not long ago, they released the music video to their single “Powerlessness.” It has recently been featured on Spinner.com as a video of the day and also on Magnet Magazine. Oh, did we mention that AOL Music showed them some love, too?
They’ll soon be releasing their debut album In Parallel on October 11 via Bibliotec Recordings. Stay tuned!
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Extra Arms is comprised of Dave Yang (vocals, guitars), Daniel Benjamin (drums), Matt Haar (guitars) and Max Kimbrel (bass). Initially formed under the name USVS, the band went through a period of lineup changes until in 2009, the lineup solidified and the band could focus on their voice and sound. After honing their repertoire and playing around NYC, the band knew that a name change was in order as work began on their first full length album, due out this fall.
