FEA Address “Girl Band” Stigma in Video | ‘No Novelties’ LP Prod. by Alice Bag Out Now | Tour

Fea is a trailblazing trifecta of Chicana Punk, Riot Grrrl ethos and blistering musical prowess. The San Antonio based band has released their sophomore album No Novelties on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records. Fea brings together Girl In A Coma’s Phanie Diaz and Jenn Alva with Letty Martinez and Sofi Lopez, to create an unstoppable creative ferocity. Produced by LA punk legend Alice Bag, the bi-lingual collection explores hot button topics, from sexism to the toxicity of social media. With the release of new single “Girl Band” alongside a Refinery29 feature, the band addresses the sexism they’ve encountered with a call back to the album title.

“A random man told me that we aren’t really hot or good looking but that our music was pretty cool for a girl band,” explains Martinez. “I didn’t understand why our looks had anything to do with it or why he felt the need to say that. Guy bands don’t really get comments like that. They are just judged for their music, yet we are looked at as novelties.” Lopez playfully shoots back “Please tell me how to fit your mold …. NOT!!”
