About Chemtrails

U.K. five-piece Chemtrails make shimmering, melodic noise pop with a discontented spirit and lo-fi complexion. Formed in London by singer/songwriter/guitarist Mia Lust, singer/guitarist Laura Orlova, singer/bassist Laura Sumner, keyboardist Ian Jubb, and drummer Sam Neubär, they signed with Stockholm label PNKSLM Recordings (aka Punk Slime) in 2016. The label released their debut EP, Love in a Toxic Wasteland, that December. Another EP, Headless Pin Up Girl, followed in May of 2017, with personal lyrics that addressed Lust's outlook as a transgender woman. Still recording in Lust's living room, Chemtrails made their full-length debut in February 2018 with Calf of the Sacred Cow, also on PNKSLM. ~ Marcy Donelson
