The girls’ style—they share a penchant for catsuits, sequins, elaborate vintage ensembles and space-age silver lamé—is as captivating as their music. “Dressing up and looking a certain part is really fun, and it’s important to have an image that suits the music. It also give me confidence onstage,” explains Opaine. “Dressing up helps me too,” adds Jaciubek-McKeever. “I’m not one to hide.” Rounding out their artistic cred are their popular limited-edition tees, featuring Opaine’s erotic black-and-white photography, and the 200,000-plus YouTube hits for their self-made, dreamy, Sofia Coppola-like music videos. Despite their many talents, the bandmates’ down-to-earth nature keeps them grounded. “Because I’ve been in music for so long, I don’t consider myself ‘an artist,’” says Jaciubek- McKeever. “My Polish grandma instilled a strange sense of duty in me regarding my craft as a musician. It has always felt more like something I was obligated to do because I was lucky enough to have very good musical training and talent, I suppose.”
