Biography

Kristina Boswell (co-founder of No Mas Bodas) started a solo project in 2011 called Kay Leotard, she played out as a singer- songwriter for just a little while before her friend, Mirna Hariz joined with bass and vocals. They started writing songs together and added Gina Jane on drums. They played around Austin and toured New York. Then Floyd Pinkerton drummed for them and their sound became more rock. In December 2012 Monofonus Press released thier full-length cassette, Witchuals. By 2013, Salem Abukhalil had joined on drums, and Colton May on guitar. They played the Austin Psych fest and two official SXSW showcases. Together they recorded Ocean Punch, a three song Ep. Mirna Hariz left the project in September, going on to form Bright Black Moon.
Kelsey Wickliffe, (from Kingdom of Suicide lovers/No Mas Bodas/Faceless Werewolves) stepped in on bass, vocals. The current lineup is a dream team of fluidity, melody and exploration of rock and roll.

Lyrics

Plum

Written By: Kristina Boswell

Pretty Pretty Man Take me as I am/ Way beyond right and wrong/ Silent you move near your want what you fear/ Pretty Pretty Man do as I command

Palms to the Sky

Written By: Kristina Boswell

Oh the mistakes we want to taste/ Sweet in descent sour in bloom/ Sharp with light fragrant with lies/ Walk with the night palms to the sky
The wind to our back the sea at our feet the unknown is shown we're swept underneath

Burn

Written By: Kristina Boswell

Inbetween the cracks where the light slips. I see my shadow move towards you. I burn burn for you I run to you. Pleasure surrenders as the winter must to the spring I bloom for you.
