SIRENA VICTIMA

Date & location formed:
December 2014, San Francisco

Reason for forming:
Our three separate bands played at elbo room on the night the Giants won the 2014 World Series and we all saw how awesome the other was. We hung out and realized we could all be in one band together.

The lyrics vary from women’s issues, language barriers, romantic trouble, people in San Francisco, and random funny stuff.

How would you describe your sound?
San Francisco fog rock with a little grage pop.

What’s in the future for this band?
We just finished recording our second album and can’t wait to put it out on tape, it is going to sound really good.

Band name:
DREAM WHIP

Date & location formed:
December 2014 / Calgary, AB

Reason for forming:
We were all really inspired by various girl groups, ranging from the 60s to now and wanted to do something of our own. It’s really been about creating our own opportunities to have fun, say what we want to say, and support each other to make the music we like.

What are your lyrics about?
Eating chips, romance, misogyny, going to the beach, being lazy, hating the music your boyfriend likes, breking all your teeth.

How would you describe your sound?
We have a lot of different influences, but when we get together, what comes out is something between pop, punk, and power pop.

What’s in the future for this band?
We’re releasing a music video and album this spring (2016), playing shows and house parties, and probably a mini tour this summer.
