— Sci-Fi indie-rockers Fellow Robot have just released a video for the track “Wedding Dress.” The video, which premiered on queer nerd culture podcast, Homoground, features two female characters embracing their love for each other on a ranch on their presumed wedding day. The song was written by Fellow Robot lead singer Anthony Pedroza for a pair of brides whose parents would not attend their wedding. The song acts as a strong reminder of love’s ability to transgress gender boundaries and reach the human heart.
Fans can watch the video (directed by Anjela Vega and Jaclyn Chessen) below.
“Wedding Dress” is featured on the band’s debut album, The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1, which is available now digitally, and will be seeing a vinyl release this October. Pre-orders are now available via Seattle based imprint, Donut Sounds (www.donutsounds.com).
To celebrate the vinyl release, the band will be performing a release show at Fingerprints Record Store in Long Beach on October 23rd. The band will also be performing at 4th St. Vine in Long Beach on November 21st.
“[The Robots Guide To Music] was a really fun and amazing body of music to record,” says drummer and main collaborator Luis, who also performs as “Ringo” in Beatles tribute band Britain’s Finest. “We worked with some of Long Beach’s best musicians and it was always a treat to be in studio, have a drink or two, and share stories. The recording part was a breeze—when you have musicians that know what they’re doing, all you really gotta do is set up a mic, and let them go at it. We actually recorded 30+ songs (the rest for Volumes 2 and 3), so there was a lot of time in studio.”
