Tonstartssbandht are Andy and Edwin White, two Floridian brothers now living in Brooklyn, NY. While living in Canada in 2009 they began to attract attention in the Montreal loft scene with a series of self-released cassettes and legendary live shows, a period that brought them close to their now constant collaborators and friends at Arbutus Records. Their music explores a deep love for boogie, '60s psychedelic-rock, and choral pop. The sound of the guitar/drum duo grows in a live setting with relentless percussion, heavy riffing and angelic vocal harmonies. They navigate their souls and psyches onstage, embracing the sense of urgency, pain, and ecstasy in the human experience: humor is love, and this is basically their life. This vibe has brought them repeatedly throughout Russia, Europe and North America. Their solo projects Andy Boay and Eola separately follow this vocal psych-pop adventure into deeper and more abstract terrains.

"Regardless of where you hit play on any of their 24 solo and collective Bandcamp albums, you'll find two talented musicians self-recording an enormous pile of ambitious music" -Pitchfork

"Tonstartssbandht feels like a once-in-a-lifetime band the first time you see them. And, well, also the second, and third time, and so on." -Ad Hoc

"While their more experimental records are perhaps a bit too esoteric to ensure Tonstartssbandht mainstream success (as is their initially discombobulating name), the band has secured a spot on many a music blogger's 'best of list.' " -Interview Magazine
