dimber, pronounced like the switch, is a punk band formed in 2016 in LA, California. Upbeat music for downbeat people. Charged up rainbow sparkles, short and fast, spindles and shards of the Clueless soundtrack aimed against social control. Theme songs of desperation and hope in the modern age.
They released the four song 7" damber - EP in 2017 and the 7" single Take Me Out b/w Sons and Daughters in 2018, both on Chain Letter Collective.
"Imagine the Descendents produced a riot grrrl band." - Candace Hansen, Razorcake.

Object as Subject
OBJECT AS SUBJECT is an LA-based art punk band led by classical violinist turned punk singer, Paris Hurley (composition, vox, drums, dance // Kultur Shock). This feminist battle cry is a call to action fueled by raw wailing vocals, a barrage of floor toms, gritty bass riffs, and exacting choreography that shifts from explicit gestural iterations to relentless phrases of wild abandon, featuring Emilia "Pony Sweat" Richeson (dance, drums, vox), Gina Young (bass, vox // SORORITY), Patty Schemel (drums // Hole), and Megan Fowler-Hurst (dance, drums, vox // Tales Between Our Legs).
An irreverent choreographic and sonic ritual, their work is feral and unashamed, spilling from the stage with calculated bursts of irreligious rites. Their debut album, PERMISSION, is a ceremonial destruction of the myth that women exist in a scarcity-driven hierarchy and must make themselves small for the comfort of others; seen but not heard, useful without agency. Laced with hypnotic drones and lyrics tackling the catcalls of construction workers, the degradation of pussy, and the patriarchal pyramid scheme of catholicism that turns the sexuality of women into a sin, OAS weaves a punk incantation inviting audiences to turn inward, face yourself, free yourself, save yourself, revel in your joy, feel your sorrow, sweat out your fears, and scream your anger.
Debut album, PERMISSION, out now on all platforms.
