Closing a three-year gap since bewildering previous EP "The Briefcase," NYC-based Bangladeafy returns with a ripping new set of tunes encapsulated on "Narcopaloma."
The origin of the Bangladeafy moniker fuses the Bangladeshi heritage of drummer Atif Haq with the physical hearing impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers - the multi-instrumentalist and his two sisters having been born with sensorineural hearing loss, rendering him virtually deaf his entire life. Yet this thought would never cross your mind, as the duo interlopes endless runs and rhythms with intense time changes and otherworldly texture with utter seamlessness.
With Atif Haq's drums being recorded by Mike Gatto, and all bass, samplers, and keys tracked by Jon Ehlers, "Narcopaloma" was engineered and mixed by Jonathan Vergara at Pancake Studios, and completed with photography by Brian Bonelli and art design by Kaptain Carbon.
The EP is being finalized for release on CD and digital formats through the band's cohorts at Nefarious Industries on August 26th; preorders, audio samples, and much more on the EP will be released over the next several weeks. Bangladeafy has booked a Brooklyn record release show on August 25th, with many other live announcements to be expected throughout the year.

NYC-based duo Bangladeafy are prepared to release their new EP, a capsule of musical mayhem containing a burst of the most bewilderingly fun metallic fusion out there. The following press release was issued about the band:

"While dropping riffery and percussion that is jagged and technical yet at once cohesive and succinct, this duo bears more than just a whack style and catchy name. Bangladeafy basically breaks down the band to the core, fusing the Bangladeshi origins of blazing drummer Atif Haq with the actual physical impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers -- the multi-instrumentalist having been born with sensio-neural hearing loss, alongside his two sisters. Disability aside, the intensely technical and somehow still laid-back basslines this musical assassin drops will floor critics and fans alike paired with is cohort’s jacked-up percussive attack.
