Fartbarf came from Los Angeles, California somewhere around the year 2008. Facing the general population as a trio of Neanderthals driven by utilitarianism, they create an unavoidable live wall of sound by shaping together relentless melodies, robotically tight rhythms, and danceable beats that compel you to move (closer or out of the way).
A limited palette of tools show a major influence on the music they create, including vintage analog synthesizers, vocoders, drum machines, analog modular systems, and live drums.
What might seem a questionable and haphazard name choice for a group seeking success, is said to mimic their live performance (and life) quite well; whether you like it or not, certain moments in time are unavoidably funny and painful.
1. Set public expectations low, but keep internal standards high.
2. Attempt only to please yourself – if others choose like it, so be it.
3. Avoid all trends. Nothing good ever comes from following them.
4. Create what others cannot easily duplicate (and probably would’t want to anyway).
5. Everything fun mustn’t always be Fartbarf, but everything Fartbarf must always be fun.
