Biography

Static People is germinated in post punk/alt turbulence with a mix of dirty pop, melodic indie swells, and a lush and urgent voice flying above the riot. Produced by Jason Carmer.

What they’re saying:
“Static People make you feel your heart beating in its cage. Tank grrl Dmitra Smith’s scrumptious voice, add the backing of Pascal Faivre…you get raving rock ‘n’ roll to grit your teeth to.”
—New York Waste

“Each track has Dmitra Smith’s voice front and center, full of the same angst and derision that propelled Patti Smith to stardom.” —The Ripple Effect

“A great mixture of shine and grit.” —Vandala Concepts


Band Members:

Singer Dmitra Smith began singing at age 8 in her native Seattle, enduring torture from a closeted and bitchy girl’s choir director who punched his stomach while screaming the word “SUPPORT” at small children. She credits him for her 3 octave range. She relocated to San Francisco in 1992 to join Fuzz Factor, featuring guitarist Joe Gore(PJ Harvey, Tom Waits, Tracy Chapman, Hole). She was a member of industrial noise and television-exploding project Sharkbait, as well as lo-fi indie trio Florida.

Guitarist Pascal Faivre is from Pontarlier, France, the capital of absinthe. He discovered punk rock at age 10, put a huge box of laundry soap into the town fountain with his hooligan friends which created 4’ high suds for blocks, started his first bands Les Cochons Dingues and Corbeaux Drivers, and wriggled out of mandatory army duty with sublime trickery.
