October 2013, in the city of Los Angeles, André Rodriguez (Vocals and Guitars), Alejandro Rodriguez (Guitars), Allan Carnevalle (Bass), and Toby Harmans (Drums), gave life to Coat Check Girl (previously known as Yell Oh Umbrella), a rock project reflective of their youth in Caracas, Venezuela -- they craved to quench their thirst for rebellion in the form of heavy metal; they wanted to encapsulate the changing speed of their time through music.
André and Alejandro are two brothers united not only by family ties but also by a musical ravenousness that drives them. With Toby, and Allan their childhood friend, they started to connect their visions of the world, their experiences growing up in political unrest, the sweeping changes that surrounded them, the chaos that ensued, and the inevitable sentimental path they’ve traveled down together.
In an effort to promote themselves and their innovative brand of music, Coat Check Girl launched a tour of southern California, visiting locales such as North Hollywood, Anaheim, Pomona, and multiple noteworthy venues in metro Los Angeles. They were eager to impart their aggressive, thoughtful and forceful sound to a new fan base. They continue to be determined to assault the American music scene.
2014 marks the launch of their haunting release. The release is staggered—one song released each month in a single-by-single format—beginning in July. In this release, the lead vocalist, André, brings the listener on a journey, reconciling
the harbingers of past struggles and exorcising the demons from his childhood.
Coat Check Girl unleashes the sound of a loud and thoughtful rock – one that is aggressive, well-structured, nuanced
but guitar-heavy. The riffs stem from the DNA of metal, but playfully dips its toes into pop and electronic. Meanwhile,
drums mimic heartbeat, shocking the melody with empathetic symbiosis. But it is, above all else, cognizant of its essence: ROCK
