Beehive. A band with one foot deeply rooted in the music of the past, and the other stepping boldly forward into the music of the future! 2007 sees the release of Pretty Little Thieves from Seattle's most exciting Pop.Indie.Electro duo Beehive. (Seattle Weekly)
Beehive consists of Vocalist/Producer Alethea 'Butterfly Beats' and Guitarist/Vocalist David Miller. The duo creates electronic rhythms and soundscapes, combined with emotive vocals, and commanding guitar tones that are organic yet modern sounding to craft hook laden, melodic, and powerful pop songs.
Currently, as of April 1st, Beehive's release "Pretty Little Thieves" has debuted in the top 10 of about 50 colleges across the nation, and has also been added to Light to Medium rotation at about 200 colleges across the United States.
'This duo makes music that electronic heads can dig into and rockers can rock out to' (MF Magazine). Thus, two worlds collided, and one of the freshest and most innovative sounds of the present was created, while still paying homage to a colorful musical past.
Beehive's current release, Pretty Little Thieves, has earned the band outstanding reviews from respected publications, magazines, as well as over 200 college and core radio stations across the country. All of which praise there modern and unique, yet classic, sound. The Tacoma Volcano calls Beehive "Giant, cool and fun," while adding that the live show is "technology and humans interfacing, causing a tidal wave of infectious energy." Angela Jossey of the Tacoma Volcano goes on to describe Pretty Little Thieves as "fresh and inventive, with an 80s feel. You can not call it retro though, there are some amazing sounds and sonic thrusts on [the record] that are definitely of the future."
Seattle Sound Magazine proclaimed Pretty Little Thieves as, '"Equal parts late U2 and the Killers" this debut full length is infectious, modern and fresh and pays homage to all electro pop rock albums that have come before. Beehive perfectly fills that empty space in your local rock catalog between the United States of Electronica and the Divorce.'
Songs from Pretty Little Thieves have continued to win local and national music competitions through Local Northwest Promotions as a featured artist in the month of October, as well as in the CMJ sponsored competition Ourstage.com, in which Beehive has placed as finalists 9 times in 7 months and won twice in the Alternative and Electronic categories.
