"...aggressive punk-minded electro...which tackles complicated gender issues as promised, throttles like a hyper-sexualized Factory Floor fronted by a howling hyena-pixie." - Stereogum
"Their aggressive punk aesthetics screech through electro-dance filters such as house and techno and creates a sound that the band accurately describes as "gender-problematizing goth dance." - Pitchfork
Today, bottoms' reveal their "hiv" track on World AIDS Day, from the upcoming debut Goodbye EP (out 1/20/15). “People have spent a long time keeping quiet about HIV,” Dibeler tells Vice. “Conversely, I think it's really important to scream about it.”
bottoms’ methods of combining hilarious and terrifying stage antics along with acid house minimalism creates a joyful yet violent experience. bottoms is Simon Leahy, Michael Prommasit, and Jake Dibeler. As co-founder of the annual Bushwig festival, Leahy spearheaded the new "drag explosion" in the Bushwick nightlife scene.
Leahy & Prommasit's prior band teeth, has toured internationally. Dibeler is a performance artist whose work touches on historical anxieties surrounding HIV and gay suicide, which he uses as the basis of his lyrics.
