The Slants

The Slants are a group of Asian-American “dance rockers” that have arisen from the unlikely backdrop of the Portland, Oregon indie scene. In contrast to the legions of bearded, flannel-clad groups one typically associates with Portland, The Slants have a rocking electronica-tinged sound that recalls the Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, the Bravery, and Joy Division. With their yakuza gangster film image and Asian-American identification, The Slants are refreshingly different from most bands who’re currently trying to bridge the gap between rock and electronica. We certainly think they’re cool and hope that you do to, when you check out this video for “How the Wicked Live.”
