Pink Noise is: Sharron Sulami (vocals/bass), Yuval Ziegler (guitar/samples), Itamar Ziegler (bass/guitar), and Yuval Lion (drums). They are a hook-laden, art pop quartet hailing from Tel Aviv and currently based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
With a captivating mix of brute sonic force and brainy arrangements set to a dark, seductive beat, The Deli magazine has described Pink Noise's sound as "a tremulous vibe, a feeling, a notion simultaneously disarming and eerie... [moving] nimbly from amorphous, ambient buzz to more traditionally structured rock with a flick of the wrist." Score magazine has called it "a soundscape that smacks you upside the head with its intensity and intelligent mix of stylistic tricks."
Brothers/guitarists Yuval and Itamar Ziegler build layers of sonic brilliance and distorted tension out of which spring unexpected melodic interludes against the backdrop of drummer Yuval Lion's thundering beats. And then there's the voice: Vocalist Sharron Sulami, in timbre and intensity a post-modern expression influenced by the likes of Polly Jean Harvey and Kim Gordon, attacks her lyrics with the fervor of a voodoo spirit. She leads Pink Noise from rolling lullaby to roaring anthem, all the while anchoring Lion and the Ziegler Bros on bass guitar.
Quite possibly the most dynamic and enigmatic band in New York City, Pink Noise has carved a niche for itself with a fearless approach that has endeared them to the likes of both TV On The Radio and Sonic Youth. Its new EP, Here Is Happiness, is a six-track prequel to its forthcoming album, What Would Happen If Someone Finds Out? The EP includes tracks produced by Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), tracks recorded for a live film session at Brooklyn's Vibromonk Studios, and a Monster Bear remix of the album's first single, "Moving In."
eMUSIC.com will be the exclusive digital carrier for Here Is Happiness, through its popular Select program. The band has scheduled performances in NYC and Los Angeles.
