Robota

by Sexypigdivas

Driving rhythms, chunky, atmospheric guitars, emotional, melodic piano/synthesizer, and male/female vocals forge an innovative sound that is hard to compare, but is seriously satisfying.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kent, Ohio-based indie rock-experimental-jazz-dance band, SexyPigDivas, formed out of necessity in 2009, bringing together varied tastes stemming from Katie Cats’s classical piano upbringing and Nicky Beatnick’s self-taught, jazz-influenced guitar style. With the idea that more is more the duo set forth to prove a two-piece band doesn’t have to sound like one.

While most duos embrace a more minimal approach to making music, Sexy Pig Divas employs as many musical styles and as much looping, synthesizers/synth pedals, and switching of places as they need to create a sound bigger than themselves. Their sound is hard to pin down, having drawn comparisons to Tori Amos and Bjork, and also Radiohead and Dave Grohl.

In March 2013, SPD released their latest EP 'Robota', a follow up to their debut album 'Eating Square Grapes at Circle Pyramids'. In addition to recording and touring, SexyPigDivas plans to continue writing scores for independent films. The most recent, “Dakota”, was a finalist in the Miami International Film Festival CinemaSlam 2013.



PRESS

“The group’s diverse sound…makes for wide appeal.” - Cleveland Scene Magazine

“…[T]he Kent-based twosome of Mikita and Gregg, who met as juniors at Boardman High School in 2003, has become the talk of the Northeast Ohio indie-rock scene with their debut effort, “Eating Square Grapes at Circle Pyramids.”- The Vindicator

“‘Eating Square Grapes at Circle Pyramids’ will showcase a cleaner, more polished sound from Sexy Pig Divas. Mikita’s powerful vocals against her eerily, happy, piano-driven songs call up associations with Regina Specktor, Tori Amos and even Björk in some places, while Gregg’s more characteristically progressive rock, shoegaze tunes paired with his Dave Grohlesque vocals round out the genre melangé…Nevertheless, there is a perceivable seriousness to the sound that is likely attributable to the intriguing chemistry between Mikita and Gregg, stemming from the intimate relationship they have with their music and each other.” Buzzbin Magazine (October 2011)

“They call themselves Sexy Pig Divas and hail from Kent. It was just a really interesting experimental indie low-fi thing…It’s just the kind of band you can really get sucked into. Mesmerizing kind of like a “Dry the Rain” Beta Band head bobbing kind of stuff.” - 52 Weeks of Cleveland

“Gregg and Mikita write all of their own songs together and have since the beginning of their career. They each also bring a wide range of instrumental skills to the songs they write. ”- Daily Kent Stater

“Great two-piece rock ‘n roll!”-Future Vampire Club
