Amsterdam based Labasheeda is known for intense and dynamic shows. They are a raw punk rock band sonically interspersed with hypnotic soundscapes.
Tying together a decade of adventurous, sound-evolving albums and changing lineups, Labasheeda’s music has a penchant for concise, stripped down melodies, and quick switches from spacious bass lines and drums to heavy, chaotic, and sometimes anthemic guitar driven songs, drawing comparisons to genre-pushing bands such as Sonic Youth and Sebadoh.
Since its formation in 2004, the band has toured Europe extensively and released various albums on its own label Presto Chango Records, including theinternationally well-received Status Seeking (2020).
Turn Up The Volume about the album Status Seeking: Is punk dead? Maybe. Is rock dead? Maybe. Is slacker dead? Maybe. Is pop dead? Maybe. Is indie dead? No way. As long as music junkies like these blend all aforementioned genres into a compelling sound of non-arty-farty and non-money-greedy honesty with a thrilling twist of their own, indie will be alive kicking.
