Steel Girls make metal speak in a practical, simple form, which makes sensual poetry possible. The rawness, the resistance and the hardness of the metal and particularly the steel is counteracted by the exible.
Angélica Castelló, Tobias Leibetseder and Astrid Schwarz started playing together 15 years after their first encounter at an electronic music festival where all of them performed in different ensembles. They have performed since then in different settings, always trying out new metal surroundings and working on creating their own metal instruments. Steel Girls nd beauty in metal found on scrapyards or at the tinner, rephrasing the meaning, revealing a new musical context.
