Bio

Kaliis Smith: Guitar, vocals, writing

Kate Dowd: Bass, vocals

Dana Wilde: Drums

 

4-piece rock band from Western Massachusetts. Pivoting, unpredictable, guitar-driven rock layered with catchy melodies and three-part vocal harmonies. Song subjects explore heartbreak and obsession at times, but tend to focus primarily on prominent social issues like police brutality, mass shootings, the inefficiency of white guilt, and mansplaining, as well as mysteries like The Green Children of Woolpit, and existential issues like if an organ donor’s consciousness or memories got put into the recipient’s mind.

 

Described as "Fugazi meets the Andrews Sisters” and credited with playing "heavy, head-banging riffs.” 

 

Highlights of some bands we’ve shared bills with over the last couple years: Bent Knee, Vundabar, OroborO, Spouse, The Winterpills, Aye Nako, Jakals..

 

 

In 2015, Kaliis, Kate, and Lynn (all of whom have experience as the primary singer-songwriter and guitarist in other bands) sought each other out with the intention of starting an all-female rock band that specialized in being kick-ass while maintaining steadfast musicality. After a few drummers, Dana joined in 2016. Since then it’s been a lot of local gigs: basements, bars, all-ages community spaces, and stages like The Iron Horse, Gateway City Arts, and The Stone Church (VT).

 

2015: Formation

2018: Debut EP “Magnetic” released in February.
