Heloise and The Savior Faire

New York’s electro-rock outfit Heloise & The Savior Faire will release their new album Trash, Rats and Microphones April 29 via Simian Records (Elijah Wood’s new label and joint-venture with Yep Roc Records). Produced with and engineered by Andrew Schneider at Translator Studios, Trash, Rats and Microphones captures the energy, sexuality and humor of the live show.

With a live show described by Disorder Magazine as a “multi-orgasmic experience with heels on,” Heloise & The Savior Faire have gained popularity in the UK after making their TV debut on The Graham Norton Show. An electrified collision of late-70’s disco-infused dance punk and 80’s synth-pop, the band is fronted by the charismatic Heloise Williams and backed by two electrifying dancers (Joe Shepard and Sara Sweet Rabidoux) as well as a full band (James Bellizia on guitar, Luke Hughett on drums and Jason Diamond on bass).

The Times UK has described them as “somewhere between Goldfrapp and The Scissor Sisters.” That's a really good description as, "Downtown," is ridiculously like the Scissor Sisters if there was an actual sister singing every song or maybe a little like Leslie Hall if she wasn't quite as funny.

The album features guest vocals by Debbie Harry who recently called Heloise & The Savior Faire her favorite underground band in The New York Times Style Magazine. Harry is featured on the songs “Canadian Changs” and “Downtown.”
