Ashley Clue, musically known as Cowgirl Clue is a Los Angeles based electronic producer who originated from Austin, Texas. Her music is described as a "Vada Vada" take on pop music. Clue demonstrates slippery vocals layered on top of interplanetary synth rhythms, and bubblegum beats to create a playful yet sophisticated sound. After starting her music career as a DJ at 17, she now takes influence in her production from J-Pop, Jungle, and Y2K pop music. Cowgirl Clue's first release titled "Cherry Jubilee" was a gateway to her innovative, yet tongue-in-cheek bops. Soon after, she released a debut EP, "Limelite" on cassette with Burger Records. Tracks like "Happy Hour" and "Genie4Life" represent Cowgirl Clue's musical vibrance and enigmatic energy styles.
So Pitted is every bit an experiment in social partnerships as it is a noise outfit. They bonded over a shared love of alternative music - Rage Against the Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, The Mars Volta. Rodriguez is a self-taught quick study who learned music theory on Wikipedia; Downey is a new wave fanatic who sticks pipe cleaners in his brain to speak to extraterrestrials; Koewler is a longtime ballet dancer whose love of aesthetes and bands like Cocteau Twins is a strong influence on her bandmates. Roles and positions have never been important to So Pitted: Rodriguez and Downey often switch instruments and both sing, while Koewler plays her guitar through a bass amp. Together, the trio just fits, a perfect balance for one another’s quirks, strengths, and shortcomings.
