And in this half decade time the East Bay has never faltered in its rising wealth of being true innovative international leaders in possessing some of the pop art world’s greatest talents, collectives and industries of aesthetic evolution. Pop noise anomaly Religious Girls return with a sharpened and earth shattering precision approach to distortion with their upcoming fall slated album for Porch Party Records. The first offering “Respect” starts with vintage keys slowly surface while a ghostly other treated effect enters into the audio picture. And that is when Religious Girls’ Christopher Danko, Nicholas Cowman & Luis Gutiérrez kick-in the beat arrangements that course through the track at various tempos and styles throughout the five minute song’s different suite sections. The track is an anthem dedicated, if not committed, to expressing through imaginative electronic soundscapes a symbol of “Respect”; exhibiting an ambitious spin on even the most seemingly sophisticated electro-odyssey college EDM conceits, conventions & expectations are thrown to the wind as Religious Girls spin glimmering keys & rolling percussion into mind carousel that awakens the senses to a meditative like state. Join us after the following debut of “Respect” as we catch up with everything that has been happening with Religious Girls, Oakland, activism, and more.
