Since forming in 2010, Rochester, Michigan’s all-girl teen band, Electric Graffiti has quickly become one of the most exciting bands on the Detroit music scene. The band began earning accolades for its alternative rock/punk sound and just finished recording their first EP entitled “Kicked Off the Bus” with famed producer Eric Hoegemeyer at Rustbelt Studios.

The girls in Electric Graffiti have been friends since they were just three years old and the band formed on a wish of performing at their middle schools sixth grade talent show. After that gig, they started getting more serious about their musical craft. Each band member began taking private lessons and honing their skills. They found themselves in new territory after a rave performance at the DIY Festival in Ferndale, MI last September. The shows organizers, Chris Johnston and Emily Husband, both said the eighth-grade all-girl band was the high point of the 50+ band music festival. "That was the highlight for me, it was really special to see them up there," Johnston said. "And they were good!” Mr. Hoegemeyer was also in the audience that day. He decided, then and there, that the band would become his “new project”. They recorded in late December 2011 and finished earlier this year at his legendary studio in Royal Oak, MI.

Even at their young ages (14), the girls have long musical roots. Brooklynn White has a famed uncle who is a platinum award winning songwriter/DJ. Cecile Herledan has family that were signed to Capital Records and an uncle who is a professional musician and works at a record company. The band also has a strong international flair with Cecile Herledan’s father from France, Rachi Willard’s mother from Italy, and Brooklynn White’s mother from Alberta, Canada.

Their new EP contains their first original, “All My Girls”. The song was guided by Dennis White (Brooklynn’s uncle) and each girl wrote their own personal verse. The guitar solo and harmonizing vocals were added later and make this song so memorable that it sticks with you the rest of the day. The second song, “Sweet Revenge”, is much more garage-y with a bit more of a rock out factor. The lyrics are perfect for anyone who has felt the need for just a little bit of sarcasm, especially the line “You want me back? Please”. The newest song, “Nightmare Lullaby” was written just days before the girls entered the studio. The song highlights how far the band has come with their songwriting abilities and features a killer riff and great drum solo (not to mention four part harmonies).

With the recording of their EP “Kicked off the Bus” behind them, the band have now set their sights on lining up more local shows and continueing to book larger gigs as an opening act or headlining band. They will continue to write originals, keep pushing musical boundaries by growing as musicians and perhaps give other young girls hope that they, too, can rock out.
