With their ground-breaking music, Energy Whores, an exciting band from New York City’s thriving music industry, hope to disrupt stereotypes and raise awareness of social issues. Created by the dynamic duo of guitarist Attilo Valenti and singer-songwriter Carrie Schoenfeld, Energy Whores became a formidable force, fusing avant-garde art rock and electro-punk-pop components to produce a sound that defies simple description.

Drawing inspiration from the classic protest anthems of Bob Dylan and the raw energy of Rage Against the Machine, Energy Whores infuse their music with biting lyricism and experimental soundscape. Described by Rock Cabeca as “an electro-punk-pop band whose hypnotic beat isn’t enough to distract from their lyrics’ acidity,” Energy Whores fearlessly tackles pressing social and political issues, shining a light on the alarming realities faced by many Americans in today’s turbulent times.

Their previous releases have garnered widespread acclaim, earning features in prestigious publications such as Vents Magazine, Earmilk, Lost in the Manor, EDM Rekords, Illustrate Magazine, Plastic Mag, Eat This Rock, and Dope Cause We Said So. With each release, Energy Whores push the boundaries of their genre, seamlessly blending elements of electro-indie, pop, disco, rock, and 80s synth to create a sonic landscape that is as thought-provoking as it is danceable.

The song changes dramatically around the 0:07 mark, as the EDM drum rhythm melds well with the catchy bass lines and lovely percussion to take the song to new musical heights.

Throughout the song, I’m struck by the effortless harmonization of the lead singer’s soft and sweet vocals with the dynamic instrumentation.
