Jailbait Find Of the Week: Pixikill

 

Pop/punk sisters put

The
full-length isn’t out until next year, but for now, fanboys can settle in with

Okay,
now that your eyes are suitably singed, some background: Jewel and Blaire,
originally from Pittsburgh, eventually joined the national touring company of Annie then moved to New York City
where they appeared in Annie Get
Your Gun
and A Christmas
Carol
, along with making several appearances in kid roles on Saturday Night Live. After four
years in New York, Jewel and Blaire headed for
Los Angeles,
where they started playing guitar, writing original songs, and forming Pixikill.

 

If
that seems like a reasonable formula for a teen-pop “sensation,” well, you’d be
wrong, but it’s a safe bet that the industry wheels are turning for these kids…

 

Jewel
and Blaire handle the songwriting and arranging duties along with guitars,
vocals, and synth, while Mike Kimchi
plays drums and Victor Trevino
and Chris Norwood multi-task
with bass, guitar, keyboards, and synth.
