Not much info available on BOTW Luchnow Brides.

Here’s what we printed this week:

BAND OF THE WEEK LUCHNOW BRIDES Sometimes you gotta play the weird card. The Luchnow Brides’ bio claims that Blazin’ Bride, Beatty Bride, and Balance Bride are “three young girls who just love to wear white.” Uh huh. “Oh, and we’re originally from Luchnow (sic), Uttar Pradesh State, India. Word.” Riiight.

But “Oo ee” has something real and unique and hyphenated going on: Lo-fi post-rock 8-bit Casio-funk. Choir-like female vocals hover over splashing cymbals and a sweet, slow rhythmic windup, with a minimal guitar riff that arrives at just the right time. The song breathes in a wisp of potential energy that’s held rather than spent. Weird, yeah—and totally intriguing. JONATHAN ZWICKEL

An email request for further info yeilded this response:

Hello Mr. Zwickel, Thanks for the lovely write-up in this week’s Stranger. We’ve been called many things, intriguing has not been one of them… until now. Where do we go from here? Is it possible that a career has just peaked? Hopefully not. We’re always cooking in the lab, so keep checking back to see what’s hot out the oven.

love,
The Brides

ps. Tell Ari we said hi. She never writes, she never calls…

Deliciously vague. (Hi Ari!) Best thing you can do is check out “Oo ee” on Luchnow Brides’ Stranger Bands Page.

We played them on Setlist this week, does that count as calling?

Given their "weird card" assessment, thought this was going to hit the ears as overly theatrical, but the Brides have a quiet beauty & delicate sensuality. And goddamnit, heart- real heart. Wow. Thanks J and thanks Luchnow Brides.
