Bo Ningen

About Bo Ningen

Reimagining psychedelic, garage, and experimental rock in resolutely forward-looking ways, Bo Ningen continually surprise their listeners. The band's heavy riffs, remarkably nimble rhythm section, and intense vocals collide and combine in ways that are at once jolting and hypnotic, alluding to prog, noise-punk, and Krautrock while an innate melodic sensibility holds together all of their experiments. Their wild blend of sounds emerged in its rawest state on 2010's Bo Ningen, a debut album that drew comparisons to a host of bands ranging from Can to Nirvana to the Sonics to At the Drive-In. Gradually, Bo Ningen's sound became more refined and intricate on albums such as 2014's III but lost none of its unpredictability. With 2020's starkly volatile Sudden Fictions, they reaffirmed themselves as a constantly challenging group that counted Yoko Ono, Damo Suzuki, and Savages among their fans and collaborators
