“Their sounds are always party-ready, ranging from R&B influenced downtempo jams, UK bass-wise future soul, and electro house ragers.” – High Snobiety

Capyac is a surreal dance act made up of one half swamp baby (P. Sugz), one half mechanical trash diva (Potion). To question the origins of the band is to ponder the origin of humanity itself. When founding member Potion stumbled upon the name, half-conscious on his bedroom floor at 3 a.m., it was nonsense, much like the primordial soup from which life on this planet emerged. Soon after, he performed his first show at the 2014 closing party of Wardenclyffe Gallery (birthplace of dematerialism). It was that summer in the sensuous milieu of youth and self discovery that Potion asked P. Sugz to joined the band. And from that moment it was a flurry of late night sets and caffeine filled studio debauchery.
The duo began to sculpt a unique sound out of their diverse musical backgrounds. They gained notoriety online after their debut EP Movement Swallows Us in 2015, followed up by releases on Lavish and Crosswalk Records. Their full-length album Headlunge was released summer 2016, and was followed by an extensive US/European tour.
In January 2017 the duo released the song “Cloud” with French label Crosswalk Records, which, despite having no actual references to clouds, elevated their reach extensively in Europe, Korea, and Japan. February saw the release of their second EP Fis, which their manager Samosa described as “a dark and swampy romper, sad and alone, meets the clean-cut hero of a Jodorowsky film.”
2017 has been referred to by many experts as “The Year We Heard About Capyac,” with appearances at Austin City Limits, Euphoria Music Festival, South By Southwest, and Red Bull Sound Select. The duo shows no signs of stopping, despite being asked to stop what they’re doing often. In fact, on the matter of stopping, the duo had this to say:
“What is this? What the f*ck are you talking about…no one reads bios lemme finish my cheese dog in peace…”
