Witness the Dreamy Madness of This THEYRGY ‘Exit Strategies’ Full Set

Chicago’s THEYRGY is one of many bands who were stoked to play live in 2020. They’d planned a sweet record release show for their Exit Strategies EP that came out August 21st via Dead Sage – order it here – but obviously we’re all still living a shadow of a life in this live music-free world. Just saying that live music venues are still closed (some maybe for good), but you can still get ~17,000 racist douchebags to a football game. (After reading that last sentence, I’m less mad about it because I’d way rather cull that population). But THEYRGY aren’t going to be stopped, and they put together a sick full set for us, and made it visually weird and trippy! They dance from track to track on fuzzy shoegaze and melancholy post-punk, all while taking your mind on a psychedelic voyage – it’s like that show where you wonder if you’re too fucked up to enjoy the music, except you aren’t! So if you’ve got one of those cool TVs I suggest you pull this full set up right now and drown your sorrows in their melodies…

We intended to play a record release show to celebrate our debut EP, Exit Strategies, but the pandemic prevented that from happening. Instead, we regrouped and coordinated a livestream performance from our quarantined spaces. Working within these spatial limitations, we think we’ve succeeded in creating something for the viewer that’s more interesting than the typical livestream. We didn’t settle for coyly playing our songs from our couches. We calibrated our external spaces to reflect our internal state. We channeled our ‘quarantine-rage’ into a grotesque visual display for your in-scape and amusement. Enjoy the rapture. Feast!
