San Francisco’s Happy Fangs are an art punk duo whose ferocious presence, and raw attitude can be heard on their self-titled debut, which dropped on October 1. The duo, which consists of vocalist Rebecca Bortman and Michael Cobra (guitar/drum machine) both come from visual design backgrounds, though musically the two come from opposite ends of the spectrum. Outside of Happy Fangs, Cobra serves as the brooding front-man of electro rock band King Loses Crown, while RGB (AKA Rebecca Gone Bad) has gained notoriety as the feisty front-woman of new-wave indie dance-punks, My First Earthquake. When the duo decided to combine forces, they decided to fore-go any defined musical blueprint and only use inspiration, spontaneity and whatever backing rhythms they could produce from a Korg Electribe drum machine.
Happy Fangs will be out on a national tour (including performances at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York this October). Before you catch them live, you can check out this feature on the band at CMJ.
