“I love dirty bass lines,” shared Cecilia, “from the moment we started Flames of Durga, it was always natural to play heavier, driving riffs with strong vocals. When playing acoustically, I sing a bit more bluesy and melodic, but when I plug in and play electric, a different kind of rock n’ roll monster takes hold that I need to let out. Women are still the minority in music, let alone in heavy rock, so I definitely feel a calling to represent and embrace it. There is a beautiful, emotional freedom in rock n’ roll that gives me a special kind of release that I can’t get from anywhere else.”
Not only is rock and roll therapeutic individually, but it has become a place of even deeper connection. “We’ve both always loved the performing arts,” explained Cecilia. “We grew up performing together throughout our childhood in LA, so performing as adults is something that came very natural to us. We also find solace and bliss in songwriting together. It’s something else that keeps our bond strong. Of course, we didn’t always get along growing up, but our love for each other always outweighs any disagreements or tension, especially when we have a creative outlet that brings us together. Our connection runs deep and everything we’ve gone through has brought us closer together. Our sister synergy is what supports and guides us on this musical journey. We always want to give it all we’ve got at every show. Any day could be our last, and life is short. We bring this mentality with us whenever we hit the stage!”
Three singles have been released off the self-titled album: “White Owl,” “Darkest Hour,” and “Alpha Woman.” “We are so stoked to have our long-awaited debut album out everywhere, March 24th!
