The heavily inked and pierced Insectavora is the lead singer, of course, and her voice transforms from a Grace Slick-“White Rabbit” sound in “More Love For You” to a childlike crooning in the humorous revenge song “The S— Has Hit the Fan.”

“We originally were going to shoot a music video for ‘The S— Has Hit The Fan’ and that was going to be it,” Riffel told GO Brooklyn. “But Angelica [aka Insectavora] has a very ‘up-for-anything-100-mile-per-hour’ personality and that kind of energy ends up being contagious. Everyone was having a great time, and so we just kept shooting one right after the other.”

Imagine how that energy will fuel a live rock show?
