She-Devils (Secretly Canadian)

Contact Patrick Tilley about She-Devils

She-Devils are excited to announce their self-titled debut album on Secretly Canadian out May 19th. Along with the announcement, they’re sharing a brand new single titled “Hey Boy.” The song fuses surf guitar with swirling sonics from Kyle Jukka and Audrey Ann Boucher’s preternatural voice. “Hey Boy” follows the recent single, “The World Laughs,” with its accompanying video directed by the band themselves who recently wrapped a successful SXSW.

 

Through primitive electronic gear, hypnotist vocals, and an “amusement park of sounds,” She-Devils construct 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 yé-yé.

 

The pair met four years ago while living at a music rehearsal space in the Mile-Ex neighborhood of Montreal. The band played gigs for about eight months though they did not record right away. Making music together meant creating their own rules and taking things one-step at a time. Following instinct is a crucial part of She-Devils’ identity.

 

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 are inspired by the cinema and art of Gregg Araki, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, John Waters and Quentin Tarantino. They direct their own videos. Audrey creates the artwork that accompanies the music. Her self-taught style evolved by watching hours of Disney movies, The Simpsons and Powerpuff Girls.
Audrey is also musically self-taught. In fact, she had never even played music before forming She-Devils. “I’ve always seen music from the perspective of an artist or music lover rather than that of a musician,” she explains. “When I sing over a loop, I don’t feel like I’m in control of what I do, or that I am cerebrally engaged with making music, it’s more like my subconscious is completely taking over my mind and it just comes out of my dreams.”

 

With She-Devils, the duo have created a channel to explore the sensory world, actualize aesthetic fantasies and alchemize pieces of history into entirely new sensations.
