aus!Funkt is a Toronto based post-art-disco-punk trio born in the post-humanistic debris.
Rejecting the lyrical and musical excesses of rock music, aus!Funkt combines the groove of electronic music with the subversive aggression of post-punk. The lyrics, spoken and sung, provoke the mind with their realism and repetition. Electronic beats seduce the body into movement, freeing it from its torpor. On top, the guitar spurts out clouds of noise, while the bass supplies the melody. aus!Funkt assaults the senses and uneases the mind while you dance to its unsettling disco beats.
aus!Funkt could be considered post-punk, but in a really broad sense - post-punk influenced punk, disco, electronica, funk, rock'n'roll, garage rock, dub, blues and whatever is stripped down, raw, unrefined and mentally intriguing. aus!Funkt follows the aesthetic of simplicity, repetitiveness and minimalism with an unsettling but curious undertone.
