The Shondes are from Brooklyn and I hear equal parts Siouxsie Sioux and Amanda Palmer. Rumor is that their live show is great.
Static of the Gods are a powerful trio with soaring female vocals. They are preparing to release a new album this fall called Knowledge Machine (which is named after the Finnish word for computer, which literally translates to “knowledge machine.”) They are an exciting band to watch with melodies and depth of noise much larger than thier numbers.
