Dre in their string arrangements. Perhaps most importantly is the way the ladies refuse to let their instruments be used as mere ornaments. Similarly, the backbone of the band is supplied by bassist Ashton Hopkins and drummer Jaclyn Phillips. Tastes of the macabre can be felt in Hopkins’ enchanting bass lines and Phillips’ thunderous drumming.
Their explosive yet sophisticated rhythms are essential to the band’s onstage presence and sound. Formed in late 2008, The Juliets first album (The Juliets S/T) was released in 2010 and has received local and national praise, hailed as “...a lush, textured chamber pop record that still — well, rocks” by TinyMixTapes.com. The Juliets have played with artists as diverse as Ornery Little Darlings, The Silent Years, The Von Bondies, Pomegranates, Frontier Ruckus, and Chris Bathgate. Most recently, they were featured in Chrysler’s Imported From Detroit campaign. Currently, the band is set to release their sophomore effort, Perfect Season, in Fall of 2011. If you'd like to preview the record, 3 of the tracks are available for FREE download exclusively on Bandcamp! Read more on Last.fm.
