When it comes to techno, Girl Band is the Rob Zombie. And they will surely shock and awe audiences at SXSW when they perform March 21st.
The Resistance movements of Ultra, and even those who are offended by the glamorization of such movements are likely to be offended by Girl Band when they hit SXSW and Electric Picnic this year. Hell, the members aren't even girls! None of them!
They're not easy to define as techno either because they're so rooted in true, aggressive punk - but the influence is definitely there. To prove this, check out their version of the tech house track "Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?", originally by Blawan.
You may scoff at the fact that these guys are part of Girl Band. You may hate on us and say this isn't electronic music. But that's just it. These guys are anti-music establishment at its finest. Their latest NSFW music video is just another example of their opposition. You have been warned.
