Green and Queer Neo-Cyberpunk Pop Duo Body Unltd Perform Tonight at Barboza – TheStranger.com

With, Body Unltd, Barber is in cyberspace mode. The machine is all around her and also part of her. The beats are faster and louder, and at certain points, as her voice swirls with the ghosts of her voice, you get the feeling of the spinning camera shot that The Matrix made famous. And also the feeling of that moment when a Link train suddenly accelerates in a tunnel.

“Like a hole in wall, there is a mystery here,” sings Barber on “Pathway”, the duo’s main and gorgeous track. But here, the green gothic of Blood is replaced by the green techno of Vod, who, like Blood, now lives in LA. Barber is the voice that remains when Seattle has vanished.

Body Unltd’s first show in Seattle is tonight, November 18, at Barboza.
