Thomas Dekker and his new band 0x0 (Zero Times Zero) will be performing at West Hollywood’s Viper Room later this month, where they will premiere their debut album.
According to Scott Porter – who presents 0x0’s Viper Room debut on Thursday, 19 April – the band “is an art collective featuring Thomas Dekker that incorporates music, fashion, video art and performance”.
At the gig, 0x0 will perform tracks from their debut album, Equals Zero, which is described as “a dark synth-ridden blend of rock, techno and rhythmic orchestral written and produced solely by the collective”.
Dekker says, “[We] intend to challenge the current conventions of pop while keeping [our] personal identities cloaked in mystery. If there was a party in the world of Blade Runner, the Replicants would surely be dancing to [our] music.”
Prior to 0x0 – which Wetpaint says is “in a word, amazing” – Dekker released a solo album, Psyanotic, in 2008 – described by the artist as “Electrofolk - songs that have a traditional melodic and chord structure, often telling stories, but technically supported by electronica. I guess I'm trying to harness nature and technology in a symbiotic way."
