ARTIST / BAND: My First Earthquake
FILE UNDER: Indie / Rock / Powerpop
INFO: Chad and Rebecca became friends through an acquaintance. After hearing some tracks of Rebecca singing over electronica beats and hearing about the sheer ridiculousness of Ice Queen, Chad convinced her to quit the band and start a project with him. During their first songwriting session,Rebecca experienced her first earthquake. They liked the sexual / geological double-entendre, and after some debate (other contenders: Sleep In The Sea, Tufte, Teenage Girlfriend, EXACTO), the name was deemed destiny.
