Interview With Atrocity Girl
1) When did you realise that you had a passion for music?
Atrocity Girl is a trio of passionate musicians from all walks of life. We all started playing our instruments as young girls and have grown even stronger together during COVID as we form life-long connections with each other recording and producing our own music.
2) Who are your main inspirations as an artist?
Johnny Angel, singer/vox: Massive Attack, Marilyn Manson, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Korn
Angie, drummer: Marilyn Manson, PJ Harvey, L7, Lunachicks, Primus, Led Zeppelin
Ryan, bass: Green Day, Nirvana, Sleater-Kinney
3) What would you like to achieve as an artist?
We would love to reach people through our music and to inspire other women to make their own music DIY-style
4) What is your most memorable moment while being an artist?
With Atrocity Girl, we've formed an LLC and built a home studio where we patch cables down the hall to our "control room" which is just Angie's bedroom, and record our music in-house. The drums are tracked in the guest room, the vocals and guitars in the closet. We worked really hard to soundproof the room and acquire gear through amazing friends and mentors to allow us to hook up an interface to ProTools and use monitors to hear how we sound while recording. We have taken up engineering as our full-time "side jobs" as we record our album after having just released our debut single and music video, directed and produced by the band.
5) Who is the biggest artist you’ve worked with?
As Atrocity Girl, we've been able to share the stage with amazing PNW artists like the MTR Project, Nurse Rachett, No Baby, Mallory, Silver Snakes, and Death Valley High.
6) Tell us a little more about your recent project?
We just released our first single, "F*ck Yourself" along with a self-produced music video. You can find us everywhere from Bandcamp to iTunes to Spotify, to YouTube. The music video carries a powerful message with it that came directly from the heart. We quarantined together to make this happen during Seattle's lockdown.
7) What should we be looking forward to from you in the future?
We would love to be able to play shows for people again, to be out on the stage playing live and on tour meeting new people and playing for new audiences.
8) Is there anything else you would like to tell our readers?
Thank you for listening. You can expect the album to drop in February, 2021.
