Wishing You Whatever's Best
My My My wants you to go to the prom with them. Their latest EP, Wishing You Whatever's Best, is a disco ball emanating the shattered pieces of love, like so many shards of light onto the punch-stained dance floor-Love: With it's crushes, euphoria, desperation, isolation and ecstasy, reeking with the existential stench of a rented tuxedo and a cheap, beer-soaked gown. Their new EP is driven by layered synths, dance rhythms and raw emotion, and while you probably already have plans with the quarterback, it's cool, because they know you're secretly turned on by their intertwining vocals, stylishly coiffed lyrics and moves that have been banned on many a dance floor. Since their serendipitous inception, My My My has captivated audiences with their magnetic boy/girl vocal dichotomy, sonorous and buoyant melodies, and dynamic, resonating beats at the Sundance Film Festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, North By Northeast (NxNE) in Toronto, the Taste of Chicago, Old St. Pat's World's Largest Block Party, the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, and in Chicago clubs like METRO, Bottom Lounge, Martyrs', Subterranean, The Note, as well as clubs on both coasts. Through the grace of Craigslist and sheer timing, My My My formed on the heels of a Chicago winter in 2007 when founder/singer/songwriter Russell Baylin set out looking for artists to share his musical vision. He found singer Sarah Snow, and together, their shared vocals capture life's playful frustrations and satisfactions. Sarah brought in multi-instrumentalist Johnny Szymanski who adds sonic subtleties that highlight the sarcastic, yet good-natured undertones in the music. Guitarist Ante S. Gelo adds multifaceted rhythm, riffs, licks and nuances that accentuate the dynamics as drummer Bill Skafish and bassist Jake Bartolone drive the mood with forceful, yet vibrant beats that sound like flirtatious revenge. Together My My My creates a vivacious depth to refreshing songs that seduce with a sly, witty intensity. My My My has been featured on MTV's Real World Las Vegas, WXRT, Q101, WGN-TV and SPIN Magazine's SpinEarth TV.
