Full Bush
Full Bush
A four piece no wave, post punk band from Philadelphia, PA. Wild and raucous heavy-punk sound careens and caterwauls; catharsis is a raw and siren wail framed around a metal, post-rock/punk, and pounding no wave beat. Tense and explosive, will have you banging your head and shuffling your feet.

Cassie O'Leary (bassist) put out a call on a local feminist group for people who wanted to play together. Adesola (drummer) and Kate (lead singer and rhythm guitarist) answered the call and met up at Cassie's home. They drank a lot of beer, talked about friendship, being a woman in Philadelphia, and jammed in her attic. Adesola met Jayne Rutter (lead guitarist/back up vocals) at a restaurant they both worked at in south Philadelphia where they bonded over their similar musical tastes. Shortly after, Jayne was brought into the crew and took the band to a new level of creativity and depth. Since then, Full bush has opened for Ron Gallo and toured with activist and punk legend Alice Bag. Their self titled album was recorded by Dave Downham at The Gradwell House in Haddonfield, NJ and dropped on August 15th, 2018.

"Full Bush reveal themselves as the rare kind of band that defies any expectation. Their songs unfold like stories from the wittiest person you know, so spontaneous they feel improvised but so seamlessly constructed you’d think they were rehearsed for years. And like a great story, once you hear the beginning, you can’t stop listening until you hear the payoff." - The Key
FuzzQueen
Forged in the glowing embers of Washington D.C. following the 2016 election and subsequent Women’s March, the members of FuzzQueen are entrenched in the thriving DIY community of the nation’s capital. While keenly aware of the inescapably political nature of their locale, they coalesce around issues of social injustice and feminine power while also reveling in a “seething tension” that serves to both mirror and confront the political climate through sonic exploration.

Following a stint in California, frontwoman Erin Frisby returned to D.C. with husband and bandmate Chris Stelloh. Reuniting with their longtime friend and drummer Ben Tufts, and adding the bass talent of Clinton Cole, the band shed their former Americana aspirations in favor of a more urgent, visceral project. Drawing from the energy of bands like Fugazi, Queens of the Stone Age, and PJ Harvey, FuzzQueen filters raw energy through compositional complexity and Frisby’s operatic training.

Although rooted in the current social climate, forthcoming single, Ribbons & Flowers exudes a more primeval energy. Deftly melding ideas of femaleness with environmental awareness, the song exists in the present but alludes to something more ancient. Combined with their affinity for community engagement, the band taps into a collective power that serves both to heal and embolden.
