In celebration of IWD 2020 we’re throwing a big bash on Saturday 7th March. Join us in celebrating the incredible Women artists we champion in our Supersonic line-ups all year round, the Women that work their bums off to make Supersonic happen and the Women of our audience who sure know how to have a good time! From the production office, to the stage, to the mosh pit – Supersonic Women take up space!
With industrious beats and yellow teats – yep, you guessed it… AJA is headlining the show!
For those at our 15th edition festival last summer who were lucky enough to catch her unforgettable set beneath the Hell Mouth – you know what the fuss is about. The unhinged nature of AJA’s bludgeoning beats and distorted drone, combined with her legendary psycho-visceral performances challenge audiences both sonically and visually.
As a collaborator with designer LU LA LOOP, AJA’s sounds have bruised the runway of Berlin Alternative Fashion Week. She works with the LGBTQ+ community running workshops in sound art and is an advocate of promoting and increasing the presence of women in electronic music.
Joining the line-up: brummie noise-makers PRETTY GRIM…
The elusive Pretty Grim are a supergroup of sorts. Anna Palmer of Dorcha, Kaila Whyte of Youth Man, and Meesha Fones of VICTOR both make up this alt-rock outfit. The layers of Fone’s thrashing drums are sliced by Whyte’s idiosyncratic guitar and topped by Palmer’s wails into the mic – the perfect cakey concoction of grinding proto-metal and angular punk, with a sense of fun that is purely infectious.
…and the gooey dream-pop of SOFA KING.
Birmingham based experimentalist Sofa King, is the musical output of pop-obsessed transgender individual Dianne Burdon. She treats reverb and feedback like a chemical formula. With raucous clashes of Tetris-like guitar beeps, to a drum beat that can just about keep up with Dianne’s vocal chants – be sure they’ll deliver on the promise of dad rock and the trans agenda.
