THE CASUALTY PROCESS is an Iranian electronic band in exile. Its members were forced to leave Iran due to governmental constraints on political and artistic expression; and they hope to provoke discussion about the region’s social issues through their music. They explode with aggressive noises, meaty bass and guitars and industrial beats influenced by electro and rock. Natch Nadjafi is a songwriter, guitar/bass/keyboard player. Shayan Amini, guitar/ bassplayer, is also a multi-project artist. http://thecasualtyprocess.com/pages/news.html
TM EYE’s music is wholly danceable. But song titles like “Pollution” and “Deepwater Horizon” suggest the local electronics-and-vocals duo is up to something more than just kicking out party jams. Its aesthetic is steeped in cultural references; even the name compounds pun upon pun — especially when rendered, as it sometimes is, “™Eye.”The music is a marriage between the song-based writing of Phil Boyd, best known as the singer and guitarist in Modey Lemon, and the electronic music of Preslav Lefterov, one of the proprietors of Machine Age Studios. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5etUXR7hTo
