Immediately calling out everyone by giving themselves the title of “first and only all Asian-American dance rock band” (sounds like a challenge, no?), The Slants are not only humorous, but also care about stuff too. Exploring topics of race and identity in America is what they do in their spare time, with synthesizers and drum machines providing a slightly more stable full-time gig. They sound as if disco had evolved and stayed popular in the internet age while still retaining the same ridiculous dress code. Social justice and sweating profusely with a hundred strangers in a dark room apparently go hand and hand when it comes to The Slants.
