Although Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon started as frontmen for two different bands, MoTel Aviv and Glasnost, their mutual respect and similar passions brought them together after their respective bands broke up. While supporting artists like Yelle, Digitalism and Neon Indian with their previous acts, Rodney and Brandon worked together on original music, visual concepts and screenplays alike. This creative collaboration left them with the collection of songs from which Night Drive was born.
Night Drive is the type of music you would hear on a car stereo if Giorgio Moroder and Ray Bradbury were driving late at night through a buzzing metropolis. Inspired by bygone era of glamour and excess, kalioscopic neon lights, Studio 54 and Tony Wilson's Hacienda, the band pulls influence from acts such as Brian Eno, New Order, OMD, The Drums and LCD Soundsystem to name a few. Night Drive rides a nu-wave of fast-tempoed, synth-based electronic sounds driven by rich guitar melodies and arresting vocal hooks.
The story of GOBI begins in west Texas, in the border town of El Paso, where Justin Dillon and Phil Arciniega first met. The two would venture across the border every weekend spending countless nights dancing in the clubs and discotecas on "The Strip" in Ciudad Juarez. There the thriving dance grooves and uptempo beats would take them on many sleepless nights and instill an unstoppable curiosity and desire to create electronic dance music. A music and sound, that has led to the duo, to be compared to "RATATAT fronted by Zack De la Rocha", and has gained GOBI the reputation for turning any room into a dance party.
Their versatile style of electro hip-hop has landed them at Insominiacs 2011 Nocturnal Fest, 2011 Neon Desert Music Fest, 2012 Bacardi+ Fest, 2012 Shiner and Do512 present The Big One, and the 2012 Pachanga Music Festival.
