We realize that “Call Me Maybe” videos are up there with pageviews, bitcoins and Sims dollars in terms of being the Internet’s official currency. Spin’s already made what was a definitive list at the time. But even if you’ve heard all nine of those, plus ninety more for good measure, you should watch this version by Bullet and Snowfox because everything about it is awesome:

The band. Based in L.A., Bullet and Snowfox (Kristen Wagner, formerly of Shut Up Stella, and Josh Shapiro) has been putting out fantastic dance-rock for years now. They’ve got an EP out, produced by Little Boots collaborator Baron von Luxxury; you should hear it.

The cover. Carly Rae Jepsen’s version of “Call Me Maybe” is sparkly and utterly charming. This version of “Call Me Maybe” is spangly and utterly slick. Both versions are excellent.

The video. Doing a “Call Me Maybe” video in which you wistfully pine after one guy? Sure. Doing a video in which you successfully reel in about three? Next-level. - Popdust

The stellar Indie-electro duo that is Bullet & Snowfox performed their third ever live show on Wednesday, March 10, 2010, at Hollywood’s “Crazy Girls.” Those of y’all who live nearby in La La Land know that Crazy Girls is synonymous with tiny dancers, silicone, and booze, but who would’ve pegged this place as the go-to hot spot for up-and-coming musicians?

Bullet & Snowfox hit the Crazy Girls stage a little after 9:00PM and were joined by a handful of ladies prancing around in barely there bikinis, but that didn’t stop the audience from focusing their attention on Bullet & Snowfox’s adorably sexy front woman, Kristen Wagner, who’s fierce vocals and firecracker energy made the dancers seem almost invisible. Throw in some super-sick guitar riffs from the other half of the uber-talented duo, Josh Shapiro, and you’ve got yourself one hell-of-a badass show. Also joining Kristen and Josh on stage at Crazy Girls were Baron Von Luxxury on bass and Pablo Amador on drums.

While Los Angeles is certainly inundated with some exceptional bands, Bullet & Snowfox stand out in many ways. They have a truly unique sound that’s just the right blend of notable influences like New Young Pony Club, The Breeders, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and other electro and rock groups, along with, of course, their own signature sound. Kristen essentially writes all of the lyrics and Josh the music, and while they admittedly have very different taste in music, they still manage to create the perfect marriage between vocals and guitar.

The song, “Neuroric Nancy,” was an audience fave at the Crazy Girls show, and also the track that the band opened up with. It‘s a really catchy tune that‘s really Kristen poking fun at herself for her various girly neuroses that many of us chicks can relate to, like wishing we‘d curled our hair before leaving the house, or worn a different pair of shoes, etc., and many-a-girl in the ladies room were overheard from behind stall doors singing the lyrics, “crazy, psycho bitch I’m getting’ antsy. All my friends call me Neurotic Nancy!” B & S played a number of other great tracks and kept the audience singing and dancing throughout.

Josh and Kristen formed the band less than two years ago, and they have managed to put together an impressively long song list in this time without sacrificing quality or originality. The show was virtually flawless, and considering that it was only Bullet & Snowfox’s third time ever performing for a live audience, I’d say that you had better keep an eye out for ’em because it’s only a matter of time before these guys go viral! - All About Music


Kristen Wagner on vocals is Snowfox. Josh Shapiro on guitar is Bullet. Matteo Eyia on drums and von Luxxury on bass fill the “&”. Together, they are Bullet & Snowfox! At least that's the way it was live with Wagner, the sly cuteness with frisky vocals, and Shapiro, gunning big caliber with guitar. Bring loud the hot dance BPMs. They were in their hometown rainbow strobe wildness at Wednesday’s Club Moscow in Hollywood. No escape when Wagner ear locked the crowd with her cosmic electric lightning. Feel the drug come alive. Dance fury. Like a bottle of strawberry soda shaken and popped. Fun filled fizz of sweetness. Pop Rocks tingling the blood with bursting sensations.

Bullet & Snowfox staged their live energy outside in the cigarette and candle filled fountain patio atmosphere, while short skirt ladies on boxes inside the club danced to the DJ. The beats pumped from interior to exterior to interior, floods of electro through every orifice. A flirty filled eighteen and over party that happens every hump day at this place. Lush, plush, and elixir delight under the solar particles of color. Bring a flyer before ten-thirty or get on the guest list and it saves ten in the pockets. Lines go fast. - Picksysticks


Bullet & Snowfox are an LA indie/electro duo that recently sent us a couple of their tracks "Bad Days" and "Undercover". Don't know much about them except that they make some catchy ass electro-pop music and I'm a big fan of that! From what I can see in their myspace videos lead singer Kristen's got tons of energy and the charisma/beauty to match. Must make for exciting live shows. She reminds me a bit of Shirley Manson from Garbage.

LA based indie post-punk duo Bullet & Snowfox cite influences from Siouxsie and the Banshees to Elastica, Berlin to The Ting Tings. All apt comparisons to be sure, but make no mistake - their brand of dance rock is entirely their own. Pairing sick beats with virtuoso Josh Shapiro's kick ass guitar riffs and topping things off with the juicy cherry that is singer Kristen Wagner's lush voice, Bullet & Snowfox are poised to take over the ultra-cool hipster scene and turn it into one big party.

Look for more on Bullet & Snowfox coming soon. Now that we've found them, we aren't about to let go. You can (and should) follow them on Facebook (and we know you will, because you're the coolest). - The Ruckus

Bio

Bullet & Snowfox is the musical lovechild of Kristen Wagner and Josh Shapiro. What began as a “casual encounters” ad on Craigslist has quickly evolved into LA’s hottest dance party. With influences ranging from Siouxsie and the Banshees and Blondie to Elastica and Garbage, they have created a unique brand of dance-rock with an infectious energy that can’t be stopped. Their combination of intoxicating synth-pop beats, aggressive guitar hooks and piss and vinegar attitude guarantees an ass shaking good time whenever these savages are around.

In 2009, Kristen and Josh teamed up with Manimal Vinyl’s own dance producer, Baron von Luxxury (Little Boots, Glass Candy), to begin crafting their self-titled debut EP. After attending the duo’s first live show in 2010, drummer Matteo Eyia hopped on board and together, they have been wowing crowds with a blazing hot set all over Southern California ever since. This fiery threesome, joined on stage by bass player Drew Behj, have made their mark playing festivals such as KCRW’s Bloomfest LA in 2010 and 2011, famed LA venues including Bardot, Viper Room and Silverlake Lounge and took to the runway with a performance at LA Fashion Week 2011 at Sunset Gower Studios. Their electro-pop-rock sounds have also been heard pulsing out of television sets with music featured on MTV and The CW. The blogosphere tastemakers have taken note, creating a viral buzz that is undeniable. The Culture of Me writes “The songs are truly the real deal and the center of the story. It’s punk, it’s new wave, it’s dance, it’s pretty brilliant and still hard edged… and boy is it fun.”

Currently, Bullet & Snowfox are spending their days writing and recording their sophomore EP as they continue to hit the stages of Southern California’s most rockin’ venues. These scoundrels have already taken L.A. by storm and show no signs of slowing down. So grab some dancing shoes and a pack of your favorite smokes because just like any good sexual encounter, Bullet & Snowfox will leave you satisfied and craving a cigarette.
