Gang Gang Dance is an American band formed 2001 in New York City by Brian DeGraw (synthesizer, percussion), Liz Bougatsos (vocals, effects), Josh Diamond (guitar), Nathan Maddox (vocals) and Timothy DeWit (drums). They are known for their distinctive sound which blends elements of psych-rock, ambient electronics, hip-hop, and Eastern music influences with the vocals of singer Liz Bougatsos. Their third album God's Money from 2005 was the first to receive critical attention and they followed this with the excellent Saint Dymphna. In 2010 the band signed with UK label 4AD records. A year later they released the album Eye Contact which received wide acclaim, chosen as "Best New Music" by Pitchfork who also named it as one of their top albums of the year as did New York Magazine and The Guardian. Tracks off of the album were remixed by Lee Scratch Perry. Their sixth album Kazuashita was released in 2018. Standout Gang Gang Dance albums include God's Money, Saint Dymphna and Eye Contact. In August 2002 founding member Nathan Maddox, aged 25, died after having been struck by lightning during a thunderstorm he was watching from the rooftop in Manhattan.
