San Francisco, CA
Potion is the San Francisco based electro-guitar-pop duo of Annie Maley (vox, electronics) and Michel Bedoya (vox, guitar). Potion makes romping, bruising, sophisticated, fuck-you pop music. Their music is a true synthesis of elements, blending modern sampling and synthesizer work, surf guitars, layered vocal harmonies, and ultra cool maracas
Potion's sound is compared to the groups the B-52s, The Pretenders, and the Velvet Underground and could be described as a mix between 1980's electronic, 1960's Zombies-pop, and entre guerres Cabaret style (oh yes, they sing in French, Spanish, and German too!!). Exhibiting DIY spirit at it's best, Potion records and releases their music from their studio apartment then spreads their tunes across the globe, touring in the US, Canada, Europe and beyond.
