Copyslut, La Llorona, and the Radical Healing Powers of Pleasure

I got to interview lead singer Chatz and lead guitarist Ray about their influences, the story of their band name, and how a karaoke performance of Queen’s “I Want to Break Free” started it all.

Emma Lee Toyoda Doesn’t Want To Play Your Show
