I’m scared! Loud noises!
Of the four tracks on Female Demand’s self-titled EP, the one that hits the hardest is the opener, “Sweet Nothing” — it starts off with almost wah-wah-sounding bass and stuttering, barely-restrained drums, then stomps its way into two minutes and change of driving, thundering, bass-and-drums instrumental rawk, leaning heavily towards the sludgy, garage-y side of things. The sound swings between noisy, punkish blues, stoner-esque metal, and an almost prog-funky vibe, if you can believe it, and the result is something like a loose, angry-drunk, alternate-universe version of Dub Trio, or maybe Jucifer rocking a dance party without the vocals. Put it all together, and it’s a hell of a ride, especially for a two-man outfit.

In their own words, they are “a 2 piece Heavy Drums and Bass band that blends sounds of Sabbath and Zeppelin, with psychedelic, tribal tangents, dance grooves, and apocalyptic freak outs” and their “goal is to create the illusion that there are more then 2 people playing the music.”
So far, they produced they produced two EPs with more records on the way. The band is also touring actively and more recently they played an East Coast tour which included dates in New York, Ohio and Louisiana, among other places.
