In 2010, Krylon and davO met and instantly began creating music originally inspired by their love for boys, being sassy, and the queer community in their new city of San Francisco. Krylon’s early years of vogueing in NYC, dancing and traveling as a club kid, and his international performance art pieces, are all part of their live performances and visual presence. davO’s earlier years of fronting a live hip-hop/funk/punk band, mixed with his musical production,
songwriting, and DJ experiences, creates the platform that captivates listeners, audiences, and dance floors alike.
Together they’ve been heating up the national queer scene since the release of their debut EP ‘Hey Girl!’ in March 2012. After their second video for ‘Bucket Betch’ was released, mountains of local buzz, followed by some national recognition, escalated their touring schedule. In early October they released an EP of remixes, and finished out the year in the studio, creating a more developed, semi-darker, heavily refined, but still raw new batch of material. Their newest single and video ‘Deviant’ introduces a glimpse of their new sound and look that will keep the anticipations high for their new release scheduled for late fall of 2013. Until then, the boys will be popping up all over the US to
rejuvenate your summer fun with their performances, ‘not to be missed.’
