SAY SHE SHE
“The funkiest sh*t we’ve heard in a while” (KCRW)
Say She She, the soulful female-led trio, stand rock solid on their discodelic duty
with their boundary breaking sophomore album Silver.
The three strong voices of Piya Malik (El Michels Affair staple feature, and
former backing singer for Chicano Batman), Sabrina Mileo Cunningham and
Nya Gazelle Brown front the band. Following the NYC siren song, the trio was
pulled from their respective cities — Piya from London, Nya from DC, and
Sabrina from NYC — to Manhattan’s downtown dance floors, through the Lower
East Side floorboards, and up to the rooftops of Harlem, where their friendship
was formed on one momentous, kismet eve.
Named after the 1988 John Carpenter sci-fi film, They/Live creates ethereal synth lines, intricate drum patterns, and haunting vocal harmonies to build complex, dystopian scenes. But Whitney Mower believes nostalgia is dangerous. And while her powerful female voice nods to a previous area, thematically, she wants to face the complex challenges of today’s post-capitalist world—to find love and meaning, to find authenticity and purity, against all odds. “What if the world was splitting into two, on what idea would you survive?” she asks.
Right before the pandemic, Mower signed to Philadelphia record label Born Losers, then released her debut album Ablation in May 2020. The album received enthusiastic accolades from publications and found many fans, even though it could only be shared over the internet.
Since the pandemic, They/Live has finally entered the physical world, bringing a three-piece band of multi-instrumentalists to the stage.
