These effortlessly cool LA chicks are a fusion of Sonic Youth and Sleater-Kinney. Very laid back & grungey with hypnotic layered harmonies, especially during crowd favourite ‘Undertow‘.

The female foursome prove the perfect ethereal ending to what has been a magical weekend. Think an all female version of The XX and you get the idea of the kind of blissed out soundscape they create. This band should be huge in 2012.
