Psychobuildings EP, All Hands Electric, 2011.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Psychobuildings is a psychedelic pop construction of danceable beats, lyrical splendor, and haunting stage performance.

The group originated with front-man Peter LaBier in 2010, a visual artist with the aim to create not just a band, but an artful experience for all the senses. LaBier joined forces with Peter Schuette (Silk Flowers) and Juan Pieczanski (Small Black) to blend dizzying layers of synth and percussion, creating the band’s upbeat-yet-dark dance sound.

LaBier’s angular vocals cut through the maze, delivering lyrics rich with fragmented imagery and moments of brutal honesty. References flash from history to pop-culture to observations on mortality and back offering a glimpse into his twisted sonic landscape. There is an emotional urgency in songs like Shocked, Wonderchamber and Hearts-- these are anthems for the broken hearted, the lost souls and the outcasts.

Live performances artfully fuse visual, aural, and tactile elements with uniquely designed outfits and stage props. LaBier’s wildly fluid dance moves sync with Schuette and Pieczanski's stop motion rhythms in a death grip from the first beat. The trio performs with Jeff Curtin on drums, rounding out the stage show.

Psychobuildings released their anticipated self-titled debut EP of six experimental dark dance grooves on All Hands Electric in July 2011. The band is currently in the studio working on their first full length with producer Peter Wade (MNDR, Jennifer Lopez) and will be hitting the road soon. LaBier and Wade met at a New York art gallery show in March 2010. Soon after, Wade began a partnership with the band, with plans to grow the project out of the art gallery and on to the pop charts.
