LA-based Alt-Pop band Madyx is headed-up by singer/songwriter/guitarist Michelle Blanchard with Pablo Martins on guitar and Dakota Issacson on drums. Madyx’s “Girl Boy” is an undeniably catchy track featuring strong vocals, compelling drums and instrumentals, and substantive lyrics that have a deeper meaning than the lyrics you typically hear on the radio.
In an email exchange, Blanchard told me that “Girl Boy” started with one line:
“I never had a girlfriend kiss me like a boy can, you should know my best friend is actually my girlfriend…”
Blanchard went on to tell me that the song goes into the blurry lines between gender and sexuality.
Blanchard: “I believe we should all embrace who we are no matter our gender, our sexuality or how we identify and that’s exactly what this song is for me.”
We love “Girl Boy” and its message — keep spreading good word, vibes, and tunes, Madyx! 🙂
