NPR REVIEWED ELAINE's ALBUM back in 2010
Elaine's debut album, De Verdad, De Verdad Quiero Que Te Mueras, or "No, Really, I Want You to Die," is a little Venezuelan punk diamond Jasmine discovered. As someone who went through several years of adolescence listening to nothing but punk, she says this band transports her back to high school. In true punk form, Elaine put out one album and broke up. But nonetheless, it's an album to listen to when you're reminiscing about simpler times.

Lya Drummer in "SimpleTybs"
From the Interview:
..."La inspiración me la da el día a día, las experiencias buenas y malas, el mundo, un paisaje, una mirada.
Yo escucho y veo música 24/7…la cosa está en saber estructurarla para que tenga “melao” (como diría mi profesor Mato)..."
TOM TOM MAGAZINE - INTERVIEW
From the interview:::
"The music scene in Caracas-Venezuela, has particularly grown in the past few years maybe because of the political tension that we live on a daily basis. Nowadays, there are a lot of new underground bands coming out with an independent support, because it’s so difficult to be signed by a label. Young girls most of the time are interested in becoming singers or maybe guitar players, but only a few of them decide to be in charge of the beat, just because it’s not an easy job. The majority abandon the instrument when they start feeling the pressure and when they discover that it is essential to play every day in order to get better in what they do."....
