Biography

Religious Girls is an American experimental pop band from Oakland, California. The band originated in 2008 after changing the name from Destroy Tokyo, an experimental noise quartet consisting of Christopher Danko, Dylan Reznick, Preetom Choudhury and James Laurence. James Laurence parted ways with the group just before the name change and Guy Culver joined in early 2008. Month’s later Preetom Choudhury parted ways and Nicholas Cowman, of Sacramento’s Brother, joined to play lead drums. Dylan Reznick parted ways with the group in January of 2010. The band’s current line-up consists of keyboardist / lead vocalist Christopher Danko, keyboardist / drummer / vocalist Guy Culver and lead drummer / vocalist Nicholas Cowman.

Religious Girls has become a diverse trio of multi-instrumentalists, with each member hailing from separate musical backgrounds that range from metal to noise to math rock and pop. Using these influences and talents, Religious Girls focus thier energy into creating powerful harmonies and layering them over intricate percussive ryhthms. Preferring to play on the floor near listeners rather than a distant stage, they feel that no matter how high of quality a recording may be the live set is what moves people, and therefore focus on creating intimacy with the crowd. Collectively, the band has tried to push aside the standards of popular song writing with non-repeating structures, an intricate mathmatical style, and a carefully laid out set in which all songs are interweaved into one. Religious Girls are known to offer an intense and dramatic set, leaving viewers in awe by the end of their live performances.
