Boy In Static

Boy In Static is the San Francisco-based duo of Alexander Chen (b. 1981) and Kenji Ross (b. 1980). The product of Taiwanese parents, Chen got an early start in their New Jersey home, from practicing viola excercises in elementary school, to hijacking the family VCR and karaoke machine in middle school, to programming melodies on the family PC in junior high. In 2003, a three-song demo made its way overseas to Markus Acher of The Notwist. The two met at a Notwist show in Boston where they discussed their mutual love of harmoniums and Acher’s newly founded label Alien Transistor. Acher personally signed Boy In Static and released Newborn in 2004, a debut album characterized by dead-of-night recording sessions, lush string ensembles, thunderous synths, and yearning vocals. The following year, Chen and Ross formed a live band to introduce Boy In Static to worldwide audiences, supporting 13 & God (the collective of The Notwist and Anticon’s Themselves) on their US and European tours. 2006 saw the completion of sophomore album Violet (Mush Records). Showcasing a stage show of combining Chen’s viola and Ross’s live electronic drumming, Boy In Static embarked on a tour of Japan with Lymbyc Systym, and two US tours supporting Freezepop.
