This Friday, two-piece electronic band Intergalactix will be playing in Gardner. The members, originally from Sydney, Australia but based in Los Angeles, include Kristian Attard and Serg Dimitrijevic. According to Wikipedia, Kristian Attard is the current bass player for Jason Mraz, and it is apparent that these musicians have been behind the scenes assisting some of the biggest names in music for nearly a decade.
The genre of Intergalactix lies along the lines of Indie, Electro Funk, and Electronica. The melodies are catchy, the lyrics smooth, and a heavy percussive style of strong snare and bass beats lays over the action. And, of course, the bass of Kristian Attard is on point throughout every song. In some of their tracks it’s interesting to listen to the undercurrent of sound that almost feels ominous, with the added upbeat vibe put on top to create the ensemble sound. Intergalactix especially knows how to intermix the best attributes of pop, electronic, and dance music.
The first track titled “Tuesday” has an indie groove and an electric synth that propels the listener to dance. The bass and beats are heavy and complimented by jamming vocals, where the chorus is bound to wind up in your head. Also check out “Dimensions,” which seems to channel the spirit of Passion Pit.

Below you can watch a video for “Tuesday,” where a bearded man delivers the gift of dance to the people. What’s in the box?!
Jenkin Benson, who was recently interviewed by Concerts, is a second-year DJ who will be opening for Intergalactix. Benson works on producing hip hop beats and remixes when he’s not providing the music for parties around Grinnell. This night of great music will start off right, so be sure to get there first.
