Read the fantastic interview Katie of Priests did with Victoria of Downtown Boys over at The Media!
We see every performance as creating a moment, a space. It is visual art as much as a sonic boom. We want to try and live towards that. We also want to break out of binaries of gender and expectations in general. While I want to fight oppression in reality, we believe in a futurism. I think of that commentary on restaurant worker uniforms. Sun Ra and the Zapatistas have influenced a lot of our band’s aesthetic. Our sirens and police documentation projections really helped us to seriously back up a lot of what we were saying with images. It was an opportunity to create political propaganda that was clear and direct.
