Week 5: The Flytraps "Female Of The Species" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
BURGER RECORDS X VOLCOM PRESENT CYBER SINGLES CLUB: THE FLYTRAPS – FEMALE OF THE SPECIES
The Flytraps have been an Orange County act to reckon with since early 2012, existing in a feral state unlike many bands that play it nice. Members have come and gone since their debut album She-Freak, but a core duo of bassist Kristin Cooper and guitarist Beth Boyd are keeping this train roaring down the tracks.
The Flytraps’ relationship with Burger Records has some deep roots. “It was a long time ago,” says Kristin. “We were courting each other all coy and shit. It kinda fell into place.” At one particular Burger show Kristin was a little rowdy, and as she put it, “I got trashed, there was some broken glass.” Beth continued the story for our pleasure, and said “She went into a breaking frenzy. She just started throwing everything.” Fortunately for the band, and much to Kristin’s redemption, whatever she did worked wonders. “Well, then they signed us, so I did something right,” recalled Kristin. The Flytraps may be wild at heart, but they aren’t evil. “I’m just trying to cause mischief. I’m not trying to cause bodily harm.”
“TURNED UP TO 11, RADIOACTIVE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FIRE!”
Sean from Burger describes their new song “Female of the Species” as “Turned up to 11, radioactive rock ‘n’ roll fire! Leather, high heels, and fist-pumping action have made this band one of our favorites for years and they are finally making their Burger Records debut! Turn it up!”
Though the details are a bit foggy, Kristin adds, “We’ve got a bitchin’ record coming out on Burger!”
