Just one of them would be enough energy to light up Los Angeles. But even better, there’s two. Sisters Xophia Jewel & Adelia Blaire Restaneo stand as the front-women of Pixikill, claiming the hybrid style of electro pop grunge as their playground. Notorious for their spastic and energetic live shows… Pixikill is music with message. Their undeniable chops make fans jump up and dance, and their tireless heart make ‘em open up and think.
Pixikill released their first EP The Luring in the fall of last year. The 5 song EP, which was executive produced by award winning multi-platinum songwriter/producer PJ Bianco (Jonas Brothers, Metro Station), was written entirely by Jewel and Blaire and features their explosive first single “Chameleon"…which kicked off the first music video from the EP, that the girls produced, directed, and edited themselves. Before being able to truly appreciate the music though, you must know the origin of their namesake which the band credits to an unlikely source. “People often mistake Pixies for Fairies… In original folklore, Pixies are actually evil creatures. In our own sort of way ‘Pixikill’ is like fighting evil; it’s the superhero in us,” says the sisters. The lead single and album opener “Chameleon” jumps at you with its fast-paced melody, boldly declaring to be your own person while the dark and tempestuous “Vampire” isn’t so obvious says the sisters, “We want to go beyond what’s typically being written about. A typical song is a love song or a party song. ‘Vampire’ is about depression, and lyrically it could be about a person suffering from depression, or it could be about the object that is pulling them into it. We like taking it to that level, and then leaving some gray area for the listener to think for themselves.”
The girls did just that. On August , they released the official music video for Vampire, which spawned an internet frenzy. With currently over 300,00 views, the video received 15,000 the first night posted. Featuring evil boxheads, forests, and a time ambiguous theme, 'Vampire' will leave you with a disturbing imprint, wanting more.
On the strength of their talent and their convictions, the creatively goofy girls that are Pixikill have announced themselves as a band with searing passion, focus, and good humor. While they may not be what the pop world expects of them, there are some facts that just can’t be argued. They are strong. They are gifted. And they are here.
