Slyboots’ unique, yet cohesive, sound can be attributed to their different tastes and similar inspirations. There’s overlap in their influences: The Beatles, David Bowie, The Cure, and their shared admiration of strong females that have paved the way, e.g., Talking Heads’ Tina Weymouth, multidisciplinary artist Grimes and prolific songwriter Julia Michaels.
Their band name came about when Slyboots was the “word of the day” on KG*’s phone. It made the shortlist, and then stuck because they decided the definition “one who is cunning or mischievous in an engaging way” fit their personalities and vibe implicitly. And their dynamic live set embodies this playful misbehavior. There’s a confidence emanating from the stage and a mystique that can only be had when three powerhouse females team up, soar over life’s hurdles, and do what they were born to do.
