Hooray for Goodbye
BIO Breakout Brooklyn Rock Band Hooray for Goodbye features a hot line up, melodic pop hooks w/ a hard edge. Singer lyricist Genny Slag is a badass, but delivers her vocals with a surprising vulnerability and an honest emotional voice. Possessing a commanding stage presence and a benzedrine like drive; her live performance is eye-popping. Delivering the low end on bass the always unaffected Marz Mikeo tattooed, moody, and always cool, seasoned from her days throwing down grooves for the seminal riot rap act Pank Shovel. Sora An is a force on guitar always positive with a genuine love for making music, she shines like a light. Completing the line up is the irrepressible always rock steady Wendy Kidd on drums. This outfit comes together like a dream with a level of musicianship and a real sense of fun and revelry. With influences as diverse as the Clash, Public Enemy, the Pretenders, Elvis Costello, the Cure, Dinosaur JR, Bowie, the Stooges, the Cars, Radiohead, Concrete Blonde, REM, Tom Petty and the Stones, Hooray for Goodbye melds together their own unique sound combining contagious melodies, offbeat lyrics, and an electric live performance that is unforgettable. The video for their single Brooklyn Girl's is currently airing on MTV's LOGO channel and Here!Tv. Hooray for Goodbye's self titled debut album is an emotionally charged head first dive into the rawness of life. As the album delves into the sometimes haunted and murky gray areas of the human condition it never loses a sense of hope and humor. The songs tell stories about people you know and situations strangely familiar touching on topics from addiction to regret to a celebration for the women of Brooklyn.
