She/Her/Hers is a queer punk band who are sincerely and critically exploring gender constructs, social dynamics, and mental illness in Lansing, MI.Formed in 2014 in San Diego, CA as a solo project, singer/songwriter Emma eventually moved to Portland and was joined by trumpet player Piper Bazard. After relocating to Lansing, MI they were joined by drummer Cody Kuuttila and bassist Jake Matter.
Out today, Kill The Boy Band is She/Her/Hers' first full-band release. The title track -- a re-recording and reimagining of a song off 2018's "Grrrl Angst" -- is a scathing critique of the male dominated punk scene. "I wrote this song at a time when I was trying to break into the music scene in a new city and struggling to find a community of bands, venues, and promoters who weren't all straight, white men," says Emma. "I wanted to cultivate a scene that focuses on diversity and social justice issues rather than the thinly-veiled misogynistic songs about exes that I was hearing at every show."
"The Spaces In-between" is a song about coping with the anxiety, depression, and alienation of life under late-stage capitalism and climate crisis. "Everyone I know feels this sense of powerlessness, in our jobs, our communities, and our political systems," explains the singer. This will be the first track in an album I've been writing for a few years about climate change and depression."
"The Execution of All Things" is a Rilo Kiley cover. "This song speaks to many of the themes I've been fixating on and writing about," says Emma. "Ever since I discovered this album on tour last year it's been one of my staples."
