What the Bloodtypes are doing both live and in the studio should, by all laws of nature, go terribly wrong. And yet – it works! Infusing their love of 77’s punk with bits of garage, elements of new-wave, even some prog, dueling boy-girl vocals, a good dose of fog, stylish bloodied up shirts, jumping high-fives, and ridiculous stage antics, this razor-sharp four-piece is bound to slash a smile on your face – whether you want it or not.
The Bloodtypes burst from the heart of the dripping Pacific Nortwest back in the distant year of 2010 when German expat babe Schneck Tourniquet teamed up with three Portland punkrock veterans. Their mission: keep new-wave fun alive in a scene that had become tiresome bearded urban folk (or whatever). What better antidote than a high-concept dress up band, delivering songs about nuclear catastrophes, dangerously sexy nurses, exploding suns and …cats?
