An Interview With Le Fomo
We recently had the chance to sit down with California native electro-pop band Le Fomo and talk about all kinds of things. Here is waht happened!
Hi Le Fomo!! Thanks for being here!
TSWS: What was your first CD?
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts -- Up Your Alley
TSWS: Who was your first concert?
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts! It was at the county fair in sixth grade. I went with my mom and my sister. It was so amazing! I was in love with Joan Jett. Her hair, her leather pants, her swagger, her powerful stance, her guitar god skils. My mom dug it, too. And my sister, of course.
TSWS: How would you describe your style?
Electro thrash pop, gender expanse wave. We're in the mix with Le Tigre, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Depeche Mode, Talking Heads, The Gossip, Sleater Kinney, The Cure. We're 'gender expanse wave' as we are post-binary people and our genders are infused into our music, our multi-instrumentality, and the lyrics and our overall lived experiences and presence.
TSWS: Is there a song you are currently listening to on repeat?
WAP. For sure, WAP. That queer version of the video is so lit! This song is revolutionary for womxn's liberation, the lyrics are bomb, and damn Cardi B just sounds so so so good. And that beat is juiced.
TSWS: Is there one place you are dying to visit?
I've been crushing on New Orleans a lot lately, although I have already been there a while back during grad school.
TSWS: What is your favorite holiday dish?
Favorite holiday is Halloween, and my birthday is October 27, so my favorite holiday dish is an ice cream birthday cake.
TSWS: What are you most thankful for?
Getting to share our music with people this year, feeling so embraced and celebrated as a musician! Having a secure job that's meaningful, with coworkers who are thoughtful, kind, committed, and good communicators (I work for the City of SF).
And... my mom. For reals. She's a tough warrior and an open-hearted, loving, tender soul.
TSWS: Please share with our readers how they can stay connected with you!
