We’re excited to announce the premiere of a new SexyPigDivas Video from our Live from Bad Racket series filmed in our Cleveland, Ohio studios.
SexyPigDivas is a indie jitter rock band band emotion experience featuring husband wife duo Katie Makita and Nick Gregg from Kent, Ohio. Check out their upcoming release “Gods and Ritual Objects”.
SexyPigDivas are multi-instrumental husband/wife duo Katie Mikita and Nick Gregg. Their music has been described as “jittery indie pop rock that manically mixes and blends genres”, but there is a “perceivable seriousness to the sound”. The SPD concept is two-fold: create an emotional musical experience for the audience and fill the room with sound.
Their upcoming release, “Gods and Ritual Objects”, will take their listeners to a dreamy world. The album will feature the duo’s unique use of synthesizers, loop and effects pedals to create a spacey atmosphere driven by groovy, hip-hop drums and piano and guitar melodies.
“…The band is at its best when delivering jittery indie pop rock that manically mixes and blends genres. —Cleveland Scene Magazine
“Kent Ohio-based Sexy Pig Divas blindside’s us with a fresh sophisticated new EP in “Robota. ” Driven by a rich base of pretty piano and intimate gritty guitars, songs like “City Life” churn out crafty progressions with a half smidgen of Western Alt-Country using haunting blended harmonies blanketed in vintage reverb.
Offering up a few different vocal sounds that are integrated nicely into well-mixed cohesive sound-amalgams; it’s almost impossible to hear the instrumental seams. The spooky classical piano staggered throughout this dense collection of songs really demonstrates the multi-flavored character of the SPD sound. “Robota” is one of those records that doesn’t ask to be liked, and it doesn’t ask if it’s good music; at first listen… it’s evident.” –Jimmyfro podcast
“The group’s diverse sound…makes for wide appeal.” – Cleveland Scene Magazine
“…[T]he Kent-based twosome of Mikita and Gregg, who met as juniors at Boardman High School in 2003, has become the talk of the Northeast Ohio indie-rock scene with their debut effort, “Eating Square Grapes at Circle Pyramids.”– The Vindicator
“‘Eating Square Grapes at Circle Pyramids’ will showcase a cleaner, more polished sound from Sexy Pig Divas. Mikita’s powerful vocals against her eerily, happy, piano-driven songs call up associations with Regina Specktor, Tori Amos and even Björk in some places, while Gregg’s more characteristically progressive rock, shoegaze tunes paired with his Dave Grohlesque vocals round out the genre melangé…Nevertheless, there is a perceivable seriousness to the sound that is likely attributable to the intriguing chemistry between Mikita and Gregg, stemming from the intimate relationship they have with their music and each other.” Buzzbin Magazine (October 2011)
“They call themselves Sexy Pig Divas and hail from Kent. It was just a really interesting experimental indie low-fi thing…It’s just the kind of band you can really get sucked into. Mesmerizing kind of like a “Dry the Rain” Beta Band head bobbing kind of stuff.” – 52 Weeks of Cleveland
“Gregg and Mikita write all of their own songs together and have since the beginning of their career. They each also bring a wide range of instrumental skills to the songs they write. ”– Daily Kent Stater
