We're excited for you to check out San Francisco-based trio Rara Replica! They are releasing their very first EP entitled Feral Heart, due out on March 1, 2017. You can see their first ever music video for "Fever Dream" - which takes the viewer through a psychedelic, cautionary tale of how Santa Vanidad came to be.
At the forefront, Katya Lopez paints a dramatic narrative with her powerful vocals and experienced instrumental performance. On guitar, Chris Palmer seamlessly glides between rhythm and lead. His delivery weaves together dreamy soundscapes and gritty solos. On drums, Steve Hinan, adds the solid backdrop whether it be for a driving psychedelic guitar solo or a rock beat with a punch.
Looking to escape a life of factory-made songs and shrinking creative space, Rara Replica takes risks and takes names. Collectively, this power trio fuses carefully crafts songs with the soul of jazz artists and heart of metal musicians.
Rara Replica attributes its name as an adaptation of a Bikini Kill song title, revamped to “strange replica” in Spanish. Staying true to their mission, Rara Replica aims to push the listener and challenge the world of plastic music to embrace the beautifully unconventional.
