Considering how controlled the chaos was on Eight Houses—the band's last offering, which was ruptured by riffs and rattled by rhythms without leaping straight off the rails—it's tough to imagine a time when Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant didn't finish each other's sentences, creatively and personally. But that's how She Keeps Bees began: with LaPlant bashing a borrowed kit (including a garbage-picked floor tom) atop a step-ladder and Larrabee directing the dark solo recordings she began soon after moving from Philadelphia to Brooklyn.

The band, which formed in 2006, have been compared to the likes of Patti Smith, the White Stripes, and Cat Power. The New York Times' ArtsBeat compared Larrabee to PJ Harvey, but added that "far from Ms. Harvey’s theatrical poise, Ms. Larrabee is loose, vehement and unchoreographed, jittering around the stage.”

She Keeps Bees is planning to release a 7” in the Summer of 2017, their first new music since 2014’s Eight Houses.
