Art Decade is an experimental/progressive rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. They are influenced by musicians such as David Bowie, Muse, The Mars Volta, and Radiohead. Their instruments consist of guitar, bass, drums, and vocals; they are currently touring with a full string quartet.
Ben Talmi of Art Decade formed his first band in 2003 while in 8th grade, with himself on guitar and vocals; Channel released its first EP "Perpetual Motion" in 2003. The band's second release was an album called "Inch Deep Oceans". Three songs from that album, the title song “Inch Deep Oceans”, “Havoc”, and “The March” were submitted for the 49th Grammy Awards in 2006. Channel toured Canada and the East coast to promote “Inch Deep Oceans” and were featured live on air and received airplay on college radio stations including Carnegie Mellon, Case-Western, Brock University, and on Yellowbeat Radio in Japan.
Channel's next release "Androgyny Is In" was recorded at Looking Glass Studios with producer Mario McNulty (Bowie, Morrissey, Iggy Pop.) In 2008, "Androgyny Is In" was again submitted for the 2008 Grammy Awards. "Androgyny Is In" garnered the attention of the late LeRoi Moore of the Dave Matthews Band which led to the newly named Art Decade recording "Innocence/Experience" at Dave Matthew's own Haunted Hollow Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. "Innocence/Experience" was released in June 2008.
Art Decade then recorded and released their latest EP, "Royalty" on September 9th, 2009. Since "Royalty," Art Decade has been playing several shows in Boston and gaining fanbases heavily in New England as well as other areas of the USA. The band is currently working with a full string quartet to help improve the bands live sound.
Art Decade released their debut album "Western Sunrise" via Eldest Only Recordings to the world on May 29th 2012. Producer Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra, Favorite Gentleman Recordings) worked with them in the studio to produce this album. The music video for the lead track, 'Western Sunrise' was made almost entirely using Procreate, a $5 iPad app, got major praise from such outlets as MASHABLE, HYPEBOT, MOTIONOGRAPHER, and many more. Art Decade worked with visionary animator and director, Whitney Alexander, to create the video. The initial concept of the video was to create a sort of painting in motion in the style of the impressionists.
Art Decade describe their music as neo indie classical, symphonic post-pop and rock. Their music is spearheaded with progressive electric guitar and dance beat themes, which lend to an aggressive rock style.
For their March 8th, 2013 Cameo Gallery show in Brooklyn, The New Yorker highlighted the show in their weekly nightlife listings.
