Vancouver band Gang Signs was formed in early 2011 by Peter Ricq (half of HUMANS), Matea Sarenac (DJ Wobangs), and Adam Fink. Through Ricq's dark, lo-fi electronics, Sarenac's ghostly, euphoric vocals, and Fink's charismatic drumming, the trio quickly became a a hot commodity, invited to open for bands like Young Empires, Breton, Nite Jewels, YACHT, and Tanlines, the last quoting them to be "a gothy B-52's." Their self-titled EP was released on August 28, 2012, followed by Remixes on February 26, 2013.
Remixes is currently available for purchase through Bandcamp, and will be available for purchase on wordandsound in late March.
"…dark lo-fi electro music full of simmering desire and loneliness." – Jessica O’Brien, Vancouver Weekly
"Vancouver, BC trio Gang Signs make an implicitly sexual dance- punk dirge, flirting with morbid funk and the kind of synth-pop you picture Gary Numan making, were he 30 years younger and signed to Captured Tracks." – Jazz Monroe, Exclaim!
"Gang Signs is darker, moodier, more minimal, and considerably more lo-fi." – John Lucas, The Georgia Straight
