Weapons of Audio are what you get when you blend hip-hop soul with indie rock attitude. Defining the idea of being a genre melter through mashing falsetto hooks and southern drawl rap with sexy guitar solos and synthesized vibes, Weapons of Audio are the future of music.

Biography

Weapons of Audio combine influences from a handful of genres to create their unique southern fried synthesized hip-hop soul. Backed by indie rock attitude and spearheaded by brothers Floyd and Jeremy Daniels, Weapons of Audio are the future of alternative hip-hop.

In October 2010, whilst living in Atlanta, the North Carolina natives released their debut album, BiPolar. After receiving warm reviews from sites like My Old Kentucky Blog and DJ Booth as well as video treatment for “If You Want Me” and “Boulevard,” Weapons returned to the studio and teamed up with Grammy award winner Graham Marsh (Cee-Lo Green – “Fool For You” f. Melanie Fiona, Cee-Lo Green- "F*ck You", "Bright Lights Bigger City”, Gnarls Barkley’s “Run” and Leona Lewis’s “Forgive Me”) to record and release a new dance floor party starter "Night Light."

The song mashes together live instrumentation and electronic compositions with a disco-funk vibe and sweet hook. Worldly and boundary crossing expressionism and dopeness is the end result.

Weapons Of Audio recently released "Night Light" - to initial critical acclaim. Allhiphop.com, the world's biggest hip-hop site, premiered the track as Alternative Heat in August and it saw its underground blog premier on SUPERGOODMUSIC.com, which called it "a certifiable bar anthem." “Night Light” has already been featured in the U.K.’s Clash Magazine, on URB.com and DJBooth.net and on L.A.’s tastemaker web-radio Hunnypot Unlimited. A Coors Light branding campaign with over 20,000 downloads, a freestyle session with Chris Webby and Chiddy Bang, an official CMJ performance and co-bills with Tokimonsta, Franki Chan, The Very Best, Jonwayne, Pac Div, Hey Champ, Capitol Cities, The Stone Foxes, Jhameel, Kosha Dillz and have only continued to elevate their buzz.

With fresh new acoustic footage on JamInTheVan.com and a new EP coming sometime in 2013 – Weapons of Audio will be invading a computer or stereo near you soon.
