Here's a list of women led synth bands so you don't have to listen to Grimes anymore:
•Tokimonsta: (Jennifer Lee) is a California based producer whose already got 3 albums under her belt, I like her
•The Knife: heartbeats is always a classic, plus Karin Dreijer also did Fever Ray as her own solo project. It's spooky and noisey, and I think that's cool
•Bjork: Bjork is always good, she writes songs about the Earth and stuff. I think that's cool and I like her
This Tokimonsta song just came up in my Discover playlist and it slaps, it reminded me of this thread that's probably worth dragging back up
yes yes yes, love all of these!
some other suggestions (sorry just song links, not good at the brief bios)
ps. fwiw i still like Grimes
@drembot I figured, Visions and Art Angels will always be top ten albums, but she's dating a billionaire still and her new single is "awful to listen to"
@SouthernGothHick i kinda like the new song personally, but maybe that's just because it reminds me of zeitgeist-era smashing pumpkins, except better. i wouldn't argue hard in its defence though. i figure it's hard to tell until you have some hindsight whether an artist has actually lost sight of themselves, or is just in an extremely weird and unpleasant phase. like bowie and his whole cocaine/witches/kabbalah/nazi memorabilia thing.
What do you think about Goldfrapp? That count?
@erosdiscordia I may have heard them on Spotify radio before, but I'm unfamiliar
Add them to the list!!
Not really just "woman with synthesizer", but awesome music IMO.
@SouthernGothHick These are all excellent suggestions. 👏
@SouthernGothHick ooo just to add to this list: Laurie Anderson, Juana Molina, Sophie, Mari Hamada
@SouthernGothHick has anyone said Purity Ring yet?
@almsiviofficial Purity Ring! I love them
@SouthernGothHick yo little dragon fuckin rules ass
@Absolutely_Blakely I endorse this statement
@SouthernGothHick How about Ayria, Üebermutter, Regenerator or Neikka RPM?
@SouthernGothHick starting a new pandora station after work!
@Ethancdavenport just smash that MF down thumbs button if Grimes shows up!
•Any song written by Lena Raine is the best song in the thing it's in.
@SouthernGothHick v late to this thread but:
Frou frou / Imogen Heap
Cœur de Pirate
Some of these aren’t strictly synth but all have a similar vibe
@SouthernGothHick oh and I don’t think I saw HAIM?
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
