Coyote Eyes
"Yellow Red"
Playing at: Cameo Gallery
(93 N. 6th St., Williamsburg)
Get: Tickets ($10 at door) | Directions

Emerging onto the Brooklyn scene in 2008, this post-punk, art rock trio has already drawn comparisons to Sonic Youth. But Coyote Eyes is no cheap indie rock knock-off. Yes, like Kim Gordon, band member Marta DeLeon plays bass and sings, but her high, bird-like voice is more energetic than Gordon's. DeLeon shares vocal duty with Manny Nomikos, who matches her sprightliness with yearning, and introduces a subtle, clever dissonance with his guitar. And drummer Jeremiah McVay gives the song a sense of urgency with frenetic yet controlled percussion.
