Female-fronted Distoria plays melodic pop rock, with piano and drums tightly enmeshed, complex electronics, and a driving bass line.
Distoria first formed in 2010 to play at the Connecticut-based music festival B.O.M.B. Fest. Helena Martin had been writing and performing as a solo singer-songwriter in NYC for five years before adding the experienced percussionist Tim Lykins on drums in the summer of 2010. The two decided the band needed a binding element and asked bassist and audio engineer Mor Mezrich to join them in early 2011.
Since then, Distoria has been experimenting with electronics and has consistently raised the level of their live performance at every subsequent show. They were honored to perform again at B.O.M.B. Fest in 2011, which was headlined by Snoop Dogg and Weezer, where they shared the stage with acts like Shpongle and the Feliz Brothers.
Their debut EP The Periphery is now available!
