Give us a little bio about you.
In 2020, us four high schoolers from north county SD came together to form an all girl garage band. Initially covering various songs by idolized/influential rock & punk artists, we aspired to write their own music. In the midst of a pandemic unable to book shows, we found ourselves in a rage of frustration and discouragement. It was shortly after our drummer moved away for college when we (vocalist Elena Olszak, guitarist Ella Sauer and bassist London Kraus) united with the younger but fierce drummer, Lillee Gillum. More determined than ever, we started playing shows regularly throughout SD county and it wasn’t long before we began the making of our wildly untamed original music. Our earlier original music was inspired by real life teenage dilemma (breakups, psycho ex-girlfriends, stereotypical tendencies).
What made you go into music?
London (bass/vocals in the band) says listening to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was a big influence for her and the band.
Who are your influences?
