Israeli. Trance. Band. Words not often strung together, but the most apt description of the striking dyad of Amit Duvdevani and Erez Eisen. As Infected Mushroom, the two producers not only watched the changes in EDM but embraced them before turning them upside down.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Duvdevani and Eisen explain their own musical evolution as they moved from from "psychedelic trance to rock trance before transforming into an electronic rock band." Like a dance band, Infected Mushroom's music is rife with the blips, beeps and thumps of EDM (and visuals are ever-present in live shows); like a rock band, the ubiquitous guitar has a leading role; and like a punk band, lyrics and tempos are often punishing. Infected Mushroom's music is both intoxicating and energizing, and though the phrase "Israeli trance band" might be unfamiliar, just think of the sound as an exotic cocktail of familiar ingredients.
