Davey Pierce – known for his involvement in both of Montreal and Yip Deceiver- steps out on his own this AthFest, co-headlining at The World Famous with JLP. After playing with of Montreal for some time, Pierce and some fellow members of the band decided to branch out in a decidedly more dance-oriented direction with Yip Deceiver. Their 2013 debut, Medallius, was described deliciously by Under the Radar Mag as “sweaty, bleep-bloopy digital pop, like Hall & Oates making hot, sweet love to a Nintendo Game Boy.” As Davey himself put it: “We pride ourselves on our grooves”. For him, it’s all about crossing sounds and influences to make the music he wants to dance to; what comes out of this desire is infectious and new.
