If you've never heard of 100 gecs, whose sound Pitchfork so eloquently equated to "throwing digital glass in a blender," we humbly suggest you grace your ears with one of the hyperpop duo's biggest songs, "money machine."
Odds are you had no clue this wildly successful duo has St. Louis roots. Laura Les and Dylan Brady both grew up in suburban St. Louis — in Webster Groves and Kirkwood, respectively.
Somehow two of the most vanilla places in St. Louis County formed two of the most beautiful weirdos. Les and Brady now collaborate with the likes of Skrillex, Charli XCX, Fall Out Boy and more.
If the last show 100 gecs played in St. Louis in 2021 is any testament to the adrenaline-pumping chaos the duo's music incites, its next return to St. Louis promises to be a good time.
