Story behind your band/artist name: We wanted to come up with something that was stereotypically feminine and then destroy that concept. That’s something we do in a lot of our songs so we wanted to mirror that with our band name. I was researching different things while brainstorming and came across a perfume called flowerbomb and the name stuck!
Band Members: Dan - Drums, Nat- Bass/Keys/back up vocals, Charles- lead guitar, Rachel- vocals/rhythm guitar/keys
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : We actually all live in the DC Suburbs! 3 of us are currently living in NOVA, and Charles lives in Silver Spring, MD. We practice and record in Alexandria, VA!
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 3 of us met at an open mic right outside of DC (Alexandria,VA) when I was only 15!
Dan has worked at several bars that are integral to the DC scene including Marvin’s room, Hogo, and the Gibson.
Our first show at a DC venue was at DC9.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: We care so much about trying to be a part of an inclusive and welcoming music community!! We love writing and playing music together because we have an amazing chemistry, not only as musicians, but as friends.
