Khruangbin is a psychedelic trio from Burton, Texas who draw inspiration from 1960's Thai funk, 1970's Persian rock and 1980's Algerian symphonia with a dash of disco, soul and balearic music.
Since forming, they've found their audiences just as diverse as their music, selling out headline shows in the US, UK and Europe, supporting acts like Father John Misty, Massive Attack and Leon Bridges, and playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Electric Forest and Wonderfruit in Thailand.
To showcase their many influences, the band does a weekly DJ set every Friday morning at 9am PST called AIR KHRUANG. Each episode highlights the best old school funk from a different city around the world. Recent cities of focus include Addis Ababa, Tehran and Istanbul. Their debut album, The Universe Smiles Upon You, was released in 2015. To coincide with the release of their second album, they created a dedicated AirKhruang site. The band’s acclaimed second album, Con Todo El Mundo, was released in January 2018.
This year at Loop, Khruangbin will be teaming up with Scientist for a very exciting live performance.
