As their UK tour draws near

tUnE-yArDs dropped by Jimmy Kimmel last night (January 5th) for a startling performance on mainstream American television.

With the release of 'w h o k i l l' last year, tUnE-yArDs demonstrated the sheer breadth of their ambition. A remarkably original album, the material dipped into Afrobeat while also displaying an incredible sense of naivety.

Live, the group are pretty special. tUnE-yArDs build up each song from simple patterns, using the loop pedal as an instrument in its own right.

Dropping by American chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! the band played 'Bizness' and 'You Yes You' - both taken from 'w h o k i l l'.

Vivid, startling, unique and extremely funny you can watch tUnE-yArDs below...
