PRINZHORN DANCE SCHOOL (DFA RECORDS)

The first UK band signed to uber hip NYC Label DFA (death from above) run by James Murphy ala LCD Soundsystem fame.

Prinzhorn Dance School are Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn. Their music is sparse, uncompromising and idiosyncratic. They are signed to the New York record label DFA. Their debut release for the label was a self recorded and self produced 7-inch single featuring the tracks "You Are The Space Invader" and "Eat, Sleep" which is now highly sought after as it was limited to 500 copies only.

Prinz and Horn recorded their debut album in isolation, in a rented barn in Sussex, having already written the songs in the disused chapel building they call home, also entirely on their own. The album was sebsequently mixed in New York with The DFA and was released on August 13, in the UK and on August 27 in North America.

The band are known to be reclusive, with very few interviews given, and their own official website rarely features any images of their faces. Media-shy - in that they find photo-shoots vain, press releases dishonest and superlatives embarrassing they prefer the isolation of their working space, writing and recording privately in their own austere and peculiar way. However, the band are building a strong following partly due to their impressive, intense live shows.

They have completed UK and European tour dates, although their American tour was famously cancelled due to visa problems. It is believed they have taken their name from Dr Hans Prinzhorn, who collected art by mentally ill patients under his care.
