The new Riot Girrrl outfit from Sophie (Little Love), Nora (Little Love, PAL, Riarki & Hersel), & Lynnette (Llennett, Storm in a D Cup). Disco Grunge. A Queer powered up explosion of angst to make you dance!

Dark electronica/hyperpop. She reminded me of Daft Punk and she was incredible live - very entrancing.
