After leaving NYC in 2016 for the first time to tour 'Body War', Show Me The Body returned to a very different city. DIY venues had been shuttered by police. Promoters who used to fight for the scene, now fought for turf and money. Show Me The Body somehow finagled a free studio in the West Village for two months. They decided to hold a residency of 5 shows sprinkled around the 5 boroughs to celebrate their scene, showcase friends and share a stage artists they respected and grew up on - artists like Haxan Cloak, Wolf Eyes, Princess Nokia, Retox, Denzel Curry and others came through.
With family in town and a free studio, they started to invite artists in, experimenting and writing and producing tracks on the spot. They were honoring their community and scene by making music. They invited illustrators, photographers and filmmakers to document it, providing an outlet for creative expression in all forms. What emerges is a document of sound and visuals that represents the scene that Show Me The Body has cultivated and built since they were teenagers. Something that represents a movement in NYC that counters gentrification and displacement, resists the forces rallying against DIY culture and is good to listen to as well.
Show Me The Body - made up of 21 year old lyricist and lead vocalist Julian Cashwan Pratt, bassist Harland Steed and drummer Noah Cohen - form part of the Letter Racer collective alongside school friends Ratking. With two EP's a debut album and a brand new mixtape, Show Me The Body have grown a cult like following, becoming a firm fixture within the city's underground scene.
