Originally from Asbury Park, the group was founded by guitarist Luk Henderiks and has nurtured their DIY roots in the New
Jersey punk scene. They have been booking basements to full-blown festivals for the last few years, touring the South, East,
and Midwest and playing alongside bands such as Charly Bliss, Nana Grizol, AJJ, HIRS, Mom Jeans, Team Dresch, and others.
Predominantly a queer-identifying band, the songs reflect that experience holistically with lyrics that grapple with
vulnerability, community, extreme existentialism, mental illness, and gender euphoria. Accompanied by the band’s explosive
energy, each song functions as a politically charged anthem. Debut album Teenage Halloween (Don Giovanni Records)
maintains constant energy, and that energy also celebrates the bravery of being a queer band. Further, the songs speak in
narratives, making sure people are held accountable for their actions and in the same vein, given the opportunity to
communicate that self-reflection.
