By sheer coincidence, both members of this queer doom pop band were raised in different cults. The leader of the cult that Pretty Boy Floyd was immersed in pressured families to have vasectomy reversals, glorifying limitless procreation. The children born after these procedures became singers in the leader’s “Reversal Choir,” children who were told they owed their existence to him.
In the beginning of 2018, Pretty Boy and Story began discussing what would eventually become their own Reversels, a dynamic sonic departure from the predatory, misogynistic, homophobic, and authoritarian environments of their youth.
The band continually strives to reverse these harmful teachings through their music, an attempt to sing-into-being a world of gender diversity, sex positivity, individual growth, and healing.
Two albums and numerous live shows later, Reversels’ sound continues to evolve with their third full album release, LaSabre. Dancing both poignantly and playfully through themes of queer love and loss, the band continues to advocate for the underdog and the demonized, rejecting oppression and celebrating life & death in all of their majesty.
Look for LaSabre everywhere on July 23rd 2021.
