Who are the Qs?
How long have you been together?
We got our start in Lexington Kentucky in 2007 as a three piece w/ a gameboy as a drummer (no joke!). We played some house shows here and there until one magical night when we were asked to play at the bowling alley. Why is that magical you ask? Because that’s when we met Chris, our future drummer extraordinaire! Since then we’ve been unstoppable!!
What do you sound like?
It isn’t easy to put our music in a category, and frankly, we like it that way. If you had to, you might call us an indie-electronic-dance-punk band. Linking classic pop melodies, punk aggressiveness, electronic flourishes, classical and gypsy strings, we create a patchwork style that is strikingly unique yet accessible. Some of the musicians/bands/genres that we’re influenced by are: Jeff Buckely, Sonic Youth, Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, Jane’s Addiction, Joy Division, Sleater-Kinney, Depeche Mode, Rasputina, PJ Harvey, The Beatles, Riot Grrrl music, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Feel free to listen to our music on our site though, and decide for yourself.
Have you played with anyone that I’ve heard of before?
Well, I guess that depends on what music you listen to! Some of the bands/musicians we’ve had the honor to share the stage with are; 8″ Betsy, Athens Boys Choir, Faust, Pariah Piranha, The Seedy Seeds, The Shondes, Nite Nite, Once a Pawn, The Degenerettes and Bitch.
Wow! I’m sold! When are you playing in my neck of the woods?
We have all of our upcoming shows/tours listed on the site, so check there first. If you’d like us to come to you, then send us a message and maybe we can work something out. We love traveling and getting our music out there.
Do you guys play festivals/universities/etc.?
We try not to turn down shows as long as they’re a good fit for us and they work with our schedule. If you’d like us to come play at your school or for your festival etc. Then, send us a message.
Why do you have a bunch of links to LGBTIQA resources?
That’s an excellent question. Half of the band openly identifies as queer and/or trans. Because of that, issues that affect LGBTIQA communities are important to us and we believe that one way that we can use our music for good instead of evil is to connect people to valuable resources. Additionally, Jack and Ondine do a great deal of organizing in Lexington around queer/trans visibility and social justice issues. If you’d like to learn more about their work, feel free to get in touch with us.

In no particular order;
Chris - drums, auxiliary percussion
Jack – vocals, guitar, bass
Ondine – vocals, violin, keyboard, bass
Seith - vocals, guitar, bass, gameboy, spring, computer
