Electronic AI Pop
Taking inspiration from the classic protest music of Bob Dylan and the edgier work of Rage Against the Machine, Energy Whores has been referred to by press as “an electro-punk-pop band whose hypnotic beat isn’t enough to distract from their lyrics’ acidity” (Rock Cabeca).
Conceived by singer/songwriter Carrie Schoenfeld and guitarist Attilo Valenti, the duo has combined their talents to shine a light on the alarming realities of many Americans as political tensions continue to grow.
Previous releases have been featured in the likes of Vents Magazine, Earmilk, Lost in the Manor, EDM Rekords, Illustrate Magazine, Plastic Mag, Eat This Rock, and Dope Cause We Said So. Not only does Energy Whores push boundaries with their lyricism, their experimental sound is entirely unique.
Described by Indie Rock as “avant-garde art rock,” their genre is difficult to pin down. Elements of electro-indie, pop, disco, rock, and 80s synth pepper their tracks.
Pedal steel in “Freedom Fadeaway”, released on February 27 even brings a touch of country into the mix. They describe their music as, “designed to be meaningful while also pushing [the listener] to dance.”
The juxtaposition between a dance-worthy melody and brutally honest storytelling not only forces the listener to think, but may just make them question what they can do to add their own voice to this movement. By A.A. Cristi Feb. 13, 2023 Broadwayworld.com
