“...a sound you can’t put your finger on and can’t stop listening to.” - Curve Magazine
York, Pennsylvania-based band, Pariah Piranha is a product of the 90’s and will remain forever nostalgic. “When we were in high school, people called some music ‘alternative.’ It was a genre. It actually meant something. I think Pariah Piranha sounds like that,” says vocalist Tara Gordon. The chemistry between the three members of Pariah Piranha is obvious, and the dancing and hand claps will happen, whether you like it or not.
Pariah Piranha’s latest album People People, produced by Pere Ubu and They Might Be Giants bassist Tony Maimone, is set for release this week on September 1st, 2009. The record is the band’s latest for the San Francisco-based label Queer Control Records. Emerging from the Riot Grrl movement, the Queercore music scene, and DIY culture in general, Queer Control Records exists to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning musicians and artists.
As an additional show of solidarity among the Queer Control and Pariah Piranha families, the band has dedicated the cover art of People People to dedication itself, with the names of the band’s supporters covering the front and back of the album. Gordon explains, “Basically we are so grateful to our family and friends and everyone involved who made this/us possible that we decided to put our ‘thank you’s’ on the cover.”
