Darwin Deez: He plays a 4-string electric guitar in his own invented, secret tuning. He was raised by Baba Lovers (followers of Avatar Meher Baba, like Pete Townshend) in Chapel Hill, NC. Five years ago, he left Wesleyan University (MGMT, Boy Crisis) to start a band in New York City. Their current live set features his original songs, harsh electronic noise, and bouts of synchronized dancing. Darwin has been dubbed the Michael Jackson of indie rock for his light skin, spirited dancing, and catchy songs. He is 24.
