Bio

In prehistoric times, the fierce roar of dinosaurs dominated the earth. Fast forward 60 million years, and those Earth-shattering rumbles have evolved. Enter She Rex. The mammoth pound of dirty drums; shrill guitar riffs; the grizzly growl of a heavy bass line and all the swag a Jurrassic She King can spit. The kind of sound that makes rocks roll.

SHE REX are inciting hype around the country after back-to-back meteoric live shows with the likes of Wolfmother, The Preatures, Stonefield, Children Collide, Regular John, Sticky Fingers, Die! Die! Die!, British India and Dune Rats.

Their Sydney Residency & East Coast Stonefield tour saw the band land in the 2014 “ones to watch” list of The Music, Tone Deaf and Rolling Stone Magazine. In addition to their revered powerhouse set at BIGSOUND ‘13 and consistent rave reviews, there's little questioning why this totally unique creation is one of the industries’ “buzziest” emerging acts.

Spitting electric elocutions and savage rhymes is frontwoman/singer/lyricist Nikkita, armed with fearsome flow and righteous fury. Skarlett Saramore wrecks up the rhythm, blasting backbeats, a truly creative and talented drummer, mixing punk and trap influences. Triple threat Sarah Jullienne aka Sarwolf gives life to sound itself through synth, keys, and vocals, the second member of SHE REX’s slick vox brigade. Darcie, the band’s resident electric lady, rounds out this explosive Molotov cocktail, bringing with her a trademark fusion of classic rock riffs and chords with the slick trickiness of hip-hop.

With influences as diverse as M.I.A, Massive Attack, Ratking, Warpaint and The Dead Kennedys. SHE REX is cooking up some new shit in the studio now and another single should be dished out by July 2015. Keep ya ears peeled.....

Cool to hear these guys backed by some big studio heft (from Tony Buchen, no less). There's snarl to spare as SR spit and scrap through a political rant that M.I.A. might've made had she grown up playing Australian pub rock.
