Easy on the Strip Club, Hard on the Ears
Before you can even get into the pure, unadulterated underbelly of an album like Exorcise Tape, you must start from the bottom. Demon Queen came about through the sheer inspiration of hard times, a break up and a strip club, which Zackey Force Funk used as a place of decompression to get away from it all. Enter Black Moth Super Rainbow’s TOBACCO and the trading of music files and you have one sinister Exorcise Tape. Unlike trashy production compatriots Wallpaper., Demon Queen’s sleazy mix of vulgar lyrics and party-happy samples function sincerely rather than as a cheeky nod to the YOLO culture plaguing most contemporary dance music today.

Heavy on the analog, and sometimes on keeping their band member identities under wraps via ninja outfits and low pulled hats, Black Moth Super Rainbow sound like a kaleidoscope of psychedelia, folk, pop, and electronica. They’re no strangers to the Austin area, and it’s probably because they’re always playing to a full house here.
