SXSW Preview: Wallpaper.

Image Title1

Joining SAY at The Speakeasy for SXSW 2012, is the ever-awesome and funky band Wallpaper.

Wallpaper. evolved from a clever jab to, as S.F. Weekly put it, "a rebuttal against pop music as simple window dressing." It boomed beyond the satire and quickly surpassed the irony and gained attention for the legit songwriting and masterful production. The beat-heavy pop ditties are built around sweaty, swaggerful beats. Wallpaper. keeps it funky, and gives a knowing nod to the early greats who offered their influence: P-Funk, Afrobeat, Bay Area rap, perhaps even some Prince. -

Check out the videos below for some samples of their songs:
