With the incessant character of rhythms that mesmerize and energize, the music is catchy enough to demand attention - Music-Tech.net


Diabolique's eccentric brand of post-grunge subverts current indie/emo structure by reviving the irreverent spirit of alternative rock.
Uses of Disorder is gritty, angst-ridden and poppy all at the same time. - Shut Eye Records


Pascale plays with conviction in an effort to create a template for female musicians. - The Village Voice


Not toe-tapping tunes, but rather dark numbers. A cross between minimalist Hole and minimalist Siouxsie.
Bleak, urban, and interesting enough to listen to. - New York Rock.com


Their songs are catchy with great lyrics. I've been humming their songs in my head ever since my first listen. - Unsigned Band Web


The perfect blend of punk, pop and hard rock. - Women of MP3.com

Bio

In this age of cookie-cutter pop stars who are plucked, styled and auto-tuned to bland perfection, somewhere in a studio apartment overlooking the Cross-Bronx Expressway is a singer-songwriter working to subvert the current music paradigm. Using stream-of-consciousness poetry over beefy guitar riffs, Pascale’s songs invoke the collective urban consciousness: East Side tenements, dirty glamour, CBGBs, Patti Smith, post-punk-new-wave, three chords and the truth.

Back in the olden days when there were more groupies than girl guitarists, Pascale Jean-Louis started taking guitar lessons from a classmate who charged her $5.00 and a case of strawberry wine coolers. Many lessons and wine coolers later, Pascale still couldn’t figure out how to play the intro to “Crazy Train,” but armed with three chords and some rants scrawled on a Dunkin Donuts napkin, she was ready to embark on a rock n’roll journey and formed the bands Eyelash and Diabolique.

Diabolique’s debut cd, “The Uses of Disorder,” received airplay on college radio stations throughout the U.S. and their single “Indie Boy” was a featured single on the "Rodney on the ROQ" show on KROQ radio in Los Angeles.

Pascale released her first solo EP "Stars Without Makeup" in 2011 and was a finalist on WNYC radio's "Battle of the Boroughs" competition. Her single "Stars Without Makeup" is also featured on the 2011 SongsAlive compilation CD.
