about

Electro thrash pop / gender expanse wave duo Le Fomo will rattle your guts with rawness and cradle you with their catchy riffs. They’re gender expansive, genre expansive, multi-instrumentalists Ess Nelson (vocals, lyrics, synths, bass, beats, arrangement) and Kai Hofius (guitar, drums, lyrics, bass), based in Oakland, CA.

After three critically acclaimed singles, Le Fomo are set to release their sophomore album Swallow Me Whole on the 25th of September, 2020 in digital and limited edition cassette formats.

Ess sums up the album’s direction and energy perfectly:

“On a sweaty quest through a sunny afternoon electro dance party to a synthwave post-punk saturated basement to belting in your car to release your pent up anger about your last breakup, Le Fomo’s sophomore album Swallow Me Whole blazes through 2020 with a maelstrom of fiery vocals, swooning lyrics, driving bass lines, catchy guitar riffs, shimmering synths, and beats that will animate your sweet, sweet cheeks and may just open up that tiny door to your pulsating heart. Swallow Me Whole calls on us to become our fullest, most expansive selves and to find authentic human connection in that place, together.”

Le Fomo’s debut album, Fear of Missing Out/No, was released on Wiener Records and their single, Saganometrics, earned them recognition as The Deli Bay Area Artist of the Month, and is available on Spotify, iTunes, and Bandcamp, as well as select tape shops across Berlin. Their upcoming album’s three preceding singles – NOTDF, Tiny Anchor and the title track Swallow Me Whole have been featured on blogs and radio stations worldwide, including New Noise, Billboard, Popwrapped and Loud Women.

Ess and Kai both live in the Bay Area, a transformative place on the planet that continually births and propels movements for racial justice and LGBTQ justice, both of which inform their music and the way they move through the world.

The two have been playing music together in various formations for ten years. Their diverse musical influences include Prince, Talking Heads, Elastica, Electrelane, Queen Latifah, Metallica, Queen, Devo, Herbie Hancock, Hank Levy, Led Zeppelin, Cyndi Lauper, Righeira, Le Tigre, Erase Errata, Karen O, Peaches, The Gossip, Gang of Four, Joy Division, La Femme, Leikeli47, and Janelle Monae.

Swallow Me Whole was recorded and mixed by Maryam Qudus at Tiny Telephone and Best House Studios and mastered by Piper Payne at Infrasonic Studios. The European Edition includes exclusive remixes from AnalogueTrash labelmates St Lucifer, The Cowls, IIOIOIOII and Ricardo Autobahn of Spray.
