Aqui is...well Aqui is different and strange. The leader singer, Stephonik looks like the female version of Stephen Tyler with her giant mouth.They seem like one of those bands that you just have to see live or you haven't really heard them. Their label Ace Fu's biography says:

"The AQUI live show is jaw dropping. Replete with a home-brewed light show, they invade lofts, basements, art spaces, parking lots and more traditional venues where they are now starting to headline. Stephonik whirls possessed through the crowd, as if in midst of exorcism, eyes rolling, her body at the mercy of freestyles and rock arias that channel the spirit of Whitman, Mephistopheles, and Iggy Pop. Dressed in her own designs, she is a cartoon character-disturbingly real-part boy, part woman, part siren, part lion."

Soo to me it sounds a little Yeah Yeah Yeahs, except a more confrontational and spastic (is it possible?) Yes I'm sure it is. They were going to be on tour this fall with Acid Mothers Temple but it seems that they've pulled out.
