TOMBOI may be a new band, but the members met six years ago kicking around the Jacksonville music scene. Alex E. (beat maker and vocalist), Paige McMullen (guitarist), and Summer Wood (drummer) kept crossing paths with various other projects before deciding to unite as TOMBOI, an electro-indie band with a heart for ’90s beats and dance-pop. McMullen admits her guitar tones are heavily inspired by bands like The Smiths and The Cure, while Wood is influenced by Hot Chip, Hercules & Love Affair, and Disclosure. The trio’s most recent single “Lobos” will be released again in March with four remixes by friends and fellow musicians Datadiamond, Sea Cycles, Prom Date, and DJ Wellfedboy. Written by Alex E., the track speaks to her vulnerabilities as a woman. “I was imagining this perception of a woman being that of a deer in an open field,” she explains. “My imagination was painting this picture of deer exposing themselves in an open field to potential predators lurking on the edges of the woods in the shadows, for the sake of food and survival. As I worked out the lyrics, I think it started to mold into more of a warning for all in general, that things and people are not always as they seem.” TOMBOI will also release their debut EP in March. —Kelly Rae Smith THURSDAY
