Tuesday, July 16th: KHRUANGBIN

Khruangbin (Thai for airplane, or literally "engine fly") are a jet-setting trio from Texas whose smooth, mainly instrumental music is heavily inspired by Thai rock and funk from the '60s and '70s, as well as a multitude of other influences ranging from surf rock to dub to Iranian pop. Active since the early 2010s, the group's indefinable yet singular and highly accessible sound has attracted a remarkably wide audience. Their full length debut, “The Universe Smiles Upon You,” arrived in 2015 and by the release of their second album, 2018's “Con Todo el Mundo,” Khruangbin were regularly playing sold-out concerts around the globe, and their music had become a fixture of various streaming platforms.

Their most recent album, “Hasta el Cielo,” was recently added to WYCE’s library.
