Dystopia

Formed in 2014, Dystopia are an all women of colour East London-based band that consists of Amna-Janine Beau-Elsayed (Lead vocals and Guitar), Ify Ekemezie (Bass and Vocals) and Abby Mulenga (Drums, Guitar and Vocals)

Feeling voiceless and underrepresented on the platforms they look up to, particularly as women of colour in rock/alternative music, Dystopia decided to reclaim these genres for themselves by becoming the artists they didn’t have growing up. The trio’s dark psychedelic soundscapes, soaring guitar riffs, and moody vocals result in the perfect soundtrack for channeling 2000s nostalgia. 

“After all, rock music is black music” – Rhonda Davis of the Sista Grrrl movement.
