1) IndiePop trio from Minneapolis, MN.
2) a deathcore/metalcore/metal band from Tampere, Finland, featurin members from Medeia and Pofony
1) Briana Smith (guitar, Keys, vocals) and Jessica Seamans (bass, recorder, vocals), the core members, grew up in the Brainerd Lakes area in a town called Crosby, and are real-life best friends. At first “two brainy, nerdy outcasts who eventually developed a fierce mutual devotion, although when they first met in 5th grade they made a lousy impression on each other, but not for long. As they discovered they had the same passion for gothy, alt-rock giants Smashing Pumpkins and a hunger to make their own music, they melded together as friends. By seventh grade, they were inseparable.” (Chris Roberts Minnesota radio 5-3-07)
Still in their teen years. they recorded their first two songs, “I want to plug U in” and “The BFF theme song”, on a split 7” with “Everybell” on the tiny say-and-stay-said label recorded march 2003 and released may 2003 in a serie of 300 clear vinyl records that were the christening release for the label as well. The records were split up between the groups and each had 150 hand-screen printed sleeves. The BFF sleeves were (and mostly are still) designed by Jessica Seamans.
A year later in their first trio line up with Karl Rotto on drums they recorded a CDep. Cute, cheerful, and unabashedly ramshackle, the group first made a splash on the local scene with the release of their self-titled debut in 2004. That album’s standout track was “My Head in Front of Your Head.” A love note to Abraham Lincoln with an instantly catchy chorus and lyrics as smart as they were silly, it had every element of a classic college-radio hit.
Karl left the band around 2004, and in a different kind of line up Allison Halter joined the group for a short while playing keybords and singing. They never recorded in this line up but the influence on their vocal development is tracable on their third say-and-stay-said release a split tape with terraclops. Joe Rand on drum, glock and vocals had joined the band at that time, and is still in their line up today.
In 2007 followed the plan-it-x cd: Romance conflict adventure on which Chris Jensen commented: “On Romance Conflict Adventure, the girls and their new drummer (Joe Rand) have laid down at least three tracks that successfully follow up on the magic of the Abe Lincoln song, the most conspicuous being “Eisenhower Is the Father.” Another infectious tribute to a former president with quirky lyrics and heartfelt sincerity, it’s a love song thanking him for his role in creating the interstate highway system, the background for a true love experience. Who knew it was Ike who put the bop in the bop she-bop she-bop?
