Wonderbitch at St. Elmo Brewery

Wonderbitch harnesses the transportive power of rock to take listeners on sophisticated flights of fancy. Citing psychedelic and 80s pop influence on their sound, they enchant with the visual aspects of their intriguing music videos and spirited live performances. Traces of Bowie, Steely Dan, and Talking Heads decorate their tunes. Lyrically, their offerings wax New Age, yet the sound is mixed in the charred, weirder edges of alternative. Their whimsical songs explore starkly rendered feelings and subjects that allow them to resonate with an introspective but universal vibe.
