Home Body is an artful pop duo, bringing a fresh tangibility to electronic-based music. Soaring textured sounds and frenzied glitches march with imaginative, fleshy vocal melodies riding proudly on their shoulders. Bold, gutsy, and full of glitz, the duo is magnetic to watch. Their animated performances include modern dance, creative costuming, and live light manipulation, resulting in a spectacle that amplifies their music. “Subtle and piercing...they bring a raw energy to the stage that leaves the audience begging for more.” - The Free George
