"National Bands Join The Action In Denver"

This Brooklyn-via-L.A. duo injects slinky sexuality into its darkly appealing, synth-driven tunes, straddling dance music and murder ballads as "the bastard nieces of Luscious Jackson and Mazzy Star." - The Denver Post


A Demonstration Of Our Abilities (demo, 2009)



After a two-year hiatus, experimental Brooklyn duo Wardens (MaryEllen DeVaux & Shawnté Salabert) are back in the saddle, cranking out raw, hypnotic, dream-charged indie rock almost three thousand miles away, fueled by the hyper dichotomy that is sun-soaked, smog-choked Los Angeles.

Scrapping their earlier work, Wardens have spent the better part of 2009 in a sonic haze of what they’ve dubbed “soulgaze”—an atmospheric mash-up of dark synth, tribal toms, raw punk rock spirit, and spooky dance beats, tinted by an ear for pop melody and a taste for the experimental.

Wardens are equally kinetic on stage, slipping between instruments and microphones, going off-script for impromptu solos, and cracking inter-song banter while their elusive stage ninja darts around. Live, they’re doused in pure rock-bred sex appeal (and often glitter), communing with their audience and churning their unique form of musical performance art into a slinky devil-may-care bouillabaisse.

In this incarnation, Wardens are the bastard nieces of Luscious Jackson, PJ Harvey, and Mazzy Star thrust into an earspace where The Kills get jazzercized, Sleater-Kinney goes na-na-na grrl group, and Animal Collective freaks out on stealthy piano ballads disguised under a wash of digital strings…
