Female Genius: Julie Hair, Nikki D’Agostino, Marnie Jaffe, and Janice Sloane.

Julie Hair and Marnie Jaffe blasted out of the Lower East Side underground rock scene of the 1980s and are still creating. Julie’s experience in the legendary art-rock band 3 Teens Kill 4 and Marnie’s Live Skull footprint inform their musicality. (The video for “Madeline” features deep-fake versions of the two when they were in their twenties lip-synching to the song.)

Nikki D’Agostino, an avant-garde composer who teaches music technology at CUNY, moved from being a fan to an integral member of the group. Her free improv, skronk, and lyrical sax lines add gravitas to the electric and effected instrumentation. Experienced performers, they are equally at home playing in a nightclub or an art gallery,

The trio of multi-instrumentalists Julie Hair, Marnie Jaffe, Nikki D’Agostino have recently joined forces with New York artist Janice Sloane on guitar. With their minimal arrangements; vocal-driven music; and bass loops layered with guitar, keyboards, percussion and sax; they seem to have found the sonic equivalent of “outsider art.”
