Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

We’ve all been very musical our whole lives, literally working on bedroom lo-fi albums respectively since the late 90’s / early 2000s. We all met up sometime around 2013 and starting working together and getting very close, we are literally like a small family since all our real families are all far away. We came up with name in an all-night shared Ayahuasca ceremony that took place about 5 years ago also 🙂 It kind of just came to us; our name chose us we didn’t choose it. In the band, Alexis is the lead singer, and principal songwriter, Chris aka Hoff plays synths and guitar, Danny aka Metty produces a lot of his parts electronically and also rhythm section during live shows.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

We prefer not to state genre, our music is just really about storytelling and just sharing some positive vibes with the world.

The musical concept behind “Women” is combining our love of late 70s lo-fi girl punk vocals like Kleenex, The Raincoats, Shocking Blue, etc with vintage synths and 2017 studio experiments in the realms of psychedelia, and south american-latin inspired riffs and rhythms.
