Fresh off releasing their new single “Your Satisfaction Is Fake”, on the final round of the Vans Warped Tour, No/Hugs continues to make their mark in the music scene. Transitioning into a more alternative pop/punk sound and not willing to back down from hard conversations, No/Hugs makes it a point to continue discussing issues within our society. The new single,“Your Satisfaction Is Fake”, touches upon issues such as depression and suicide with a much-needed focus on the LGBTQIA community. Alongside their single comes a dynamic video that follows the story line of two transgender teenagers on the verge of breaking down because they live in a society that won’t accept them. In order to keep surviving, people use masks to conform and hide their true identity.
A mix of polished alternative rock and pop/punk makes Boston’s No/Hugs one of the most unique bands to catch. The members consist of Narcissus A-Ngel on vocals and Kat Dukeshire on drums.
Prepping for a year full of touring, they hit the road in September for the first leg of their East Coast tour. Live, the band is absolute madness, high energy with a bold performance. No/Hugs are currently in the studio writing their first full length album.
I'm a photojournalist who is passionate about music. I love the adrenaline of shooting live concerts. Photography has given me the opportunity to photograph some of today's most legendary bands, and entertainers. When I'm not photographing music you can find me on the runway shooting New York and Philadelphia Fashion Week.
