Montreal duo She-Devils is excited to announce its signing to Secretly Canadian and share a brand new single, “The World Laughs,” along with an official video.
Through primitive electronic gear, hypnotist vocals, and an “amusement park of sounds,” the duo of Audrey Ann Boucher and Kyle Jukka constructs a fun-house world of beautiful chaos. The music is built from original sonics inspired by everything from Iggy Pop to Madonna to T-Rex to Can, as well as the romantic longing of ’60s pop.
Striving to make music that feels “as visual as possible,” the band hopes to strap listeners into a rollercoaster ride “with Audrey’s voice as the centrepiece to cling to.” The duo is inspired by the cinema and art of Gregg Araki, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, John Waters and Quentin Tarantino. They direct their own videos, and Audrey creates the artwork that accompanies the music. Her self-taught style evolved by watching hours of Disney movies, The Simpsons and Powerpuff Girls.
She-Devils will play a special, intimate performance at The Glove in Bushwick, Brooklyn tomorrow, March 2nd, before making their way to SXSW in Austin later this month. In May, they head to the UK for select shows including The Great Escape Festival in Brighton. A list of dates is below with more to be announced soon.
