Hailing from Meat Cove, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the Dry Heeves are cultural analysts who use music as their dissemination medium of choice. Their meditatively eccentric compositions can be overwhelming at first; but once assimilated, they become invigorating, cleansing, genuinely hilarious and frequently gratifying. Shifting from rock to pop, to tribal, to folk, to metal, to ambient, to noise and to full-blown electronica, the Dry Heeves take the listener on a bizarre journey that is laughable, disturbing, and strange.
“The Dry Heeves take musical bits from cultures around the world, and try to find ways to put them together in which no one else would. Some tracks are intended to be pure silliness, but others take on a more serious feel and attempt to make strong statements. It gives a breadth and depth to what they are doing in an experimental genre that is often overlooked."
