Seattle rock 'n' roll quartet Thunderpussy is all about riffing and wailing. Their self-titled debut — released earlier this year on Stardog Records — is a round dozen of killer cuts, but the band also shines in live performance. Replete with costumes, rock jumps, and high kicks, Thunderpussy brings a visual element to its shows that is sorely needed in an age of black t-shirts and beards. It's matched by Thunderpussy's music videos, which play out like mini movies, whether they're narrative or performance-driven.
So, it's no surprise that frontwoman and vocalist Molly Sides was chosen as the star of director Robert McGinley's 2017 independent sci-fi actioner, Danger Diva. The movie is about a hard rocking singer coerced into becoming a technologically altered diva by her high billionaire patron. It came early in the band's career, so it provides a really interesting snapshot of the band while they were still nascent rock gods. We spoke with Sides last month about the film and her experience making it.
