Biography

Supercute! were an American indie pop band from New York City composed of teenage-girl members Rachel Trachtenburg, Julia Cumming, LuLu Laurette Prat and Ruby Tanja. The band has acquired notable press attention, toured several times in the U.S. and Europe with English singer-songwriter Kate Nash.

Trachtenburg has described the band’s sound as “psychedelic-indie-bubblegum”;[1] Cumming told Nylon Magazine Supercute’s songs are “ukelele rock operas”, while Nash was quoted as saying “it’s smartest pop you’ve heard in years. It’s candy-colored, girly and fierce, political and intelligent, innocent yet wise. And they have indie-credible style.”[2]

Trachtenburg and Cumming, the core members of the band, also co-host an Internet radio show named Pure Imagination on the Progressive Radio Network about politics, art and music that’s aimed primarily at fellow teens.[3] The two are in a Glam rock cover band, Terry Tinsel,[4] and both have done some fashion modeling - Trachtenburg is currently signed with Elite Model Management.[5] Rachel has also been an outspoken political activist, remarkably addressing the New York City Council at age 14 in 2008 to protest against Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s rewriting of the city’s mayoral term-limits law,[6] and both she and Julia have been actively involved with protests on behalf of Slutwalk NYC, in favor of vegetarianism, and against the mistreatment of Central Park’s carriage horses. “We want to change the world,” Trachtenburg told a national magazine in 2011.
