bottoms premiere "My Body" via Stereogum + debut EP out in Jan 2015 on Atlas Chair

"...aggressive punk-minded electro...which tackles complicated gender issues as promised, throttles like a hyper-sexualized Factory Floor fronted by a howling hyena-pixie." - Stereogum

The gender-problematizing goth dance band bottoms, grown out of Brooklyn's DIY art space Secret Project Robot in 2013, reveals their first track “My Body" on Stereogum (free to share HERE). Their Goodbye EP will come out in January 2015 via JD Samson's Atlas Chair.

bottoms’ methods of combining hilarious and terrifying stage antics along with acid house minimalism creates a joyful yet violent experience. bottoms is Simon Leahy, Michael Prommasit, and Jake Dibeler. As co-founder of the annual Bushwig festival, Leahy spearheaded the new "drag explosion" in the Bushwick nightlife scene.
Leahy & Prommasit's prior band, teeth, has toured internationally. Dibeler is a performance artist whose work touches on historical anxieties surrounding HIV and gay suicide, which he uses as the basis of his lyrics.
