Touch People

Having played in several "rockish" bands (including Beep Beep on Saddle Creek Records), Darren Keen, aka Touch People, records guitars, drums, bass, and keyboards, and then assembles his Touch People compositions via experimental/modern production that is both visceral and cerebral. The resulting sound bears resemblance to artists such as Steve Reich, Battles, Dan Deacon, and Tortoise. With this digital-yet-human approach Touch People poses the question: "Do people even want to be touched anymore?" As technology grows, Keen sees a disheartening trend, where people "stay connected" without connecting at all.
