His was named one of MTV Clubland's "Artists to Watch in 2013.” His most recent release is "Without You," featuring the one and only Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Check out the rest of his tunes here.Anamanaguchi is a boy band made up of hackers and producers born & raised on the Internet, currently living in New York City. Anamanaguchi started in Pete Berkman’s basement in the suburbs of New York where Weezer, snacks and Super Nintendo lived in equal rotation. At 15, he began experimenting with creating punk music using an 8-bit NES. Following bass player James DeVito to NYU’s Music Technology program, Pete met Ary Warnaar who grew up in LA on raves, fashion and lazer tag. Ary began writing for the band, lending a more academic electronic-influence to Berkman’s capricious pop sensibilities. Later that year Luke joined as the band’s drummer via a MySpace message and then the band had fully formed.
