- Avey Tare (David Portner; vocals, guitar, samples, keyboard instruments, percussion) – Name comes from "tearing" apart the name David to make Avey Tare.
- Deakin (Josh Dibb; synthesizer, guitar, vocals) – Name comes from letters he used to write to other members under the name Conrad Deacon. He has used different spellings of the name on different albums: Having been absent from the band's tours since early 2007, he began a solo tour in 2010 (using the spelling "Deakin" at the request of fellow Baltimorean musician Dan Deacon, in order to avoid confusion.)
- Geologist (Brian Weitz; electronics, samples, vocals) – Name comes from the headlamp he wears in order to see the electronics during live shows. Someone mistakenly thought Brian studied geology in college; however, he studied marine biology.
- Panda Bear (Noah Lennox; vocals, percussion, samples, guitar) – Name comes from the panda he drew on the first set of songs he ever wrote.
