BIOGRAPHY

Most of the time the word “heavy” is used in reference to metal or hardcore bands. For the last two years Chicharra has been interpreting it in our own way.

We all grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, our city surrounded by sometimes stark but always gorgeous desert. We hardened in a brutal summer heat under the hum of swamp coolers, and hope our songs reflect the love and grit it takes for something to grow where no one expects.

At a house party, our audience called for one more, and knowing what was left in our pocket,  we asked: “Do you want something beautiful? Or something brutal?” There were calls for each, and then some sweaty genius shouted, “Make it brootiful!” An ideal hybrid adjective for our sound right now.

The word “Chicharra” means “cicada” but also, roughly, sound you can’t control in your environment--buzzers and bells, and people who talk too much. We respond to all of these ideas, inviting a swelling cacophony into our songs.
