About

We Are Like the Spider is a four-piece electronic-rock band with dark, danceable beats and melodies, currently based in Portland, Oregon. Comprised of Lucia Luna, Gozu Lamonde, Cait Autonomy, and Monica Metzler, WALTS create tension and balance with their yin/yang spiral of rhythmic energy.

Write ups:
Slightly off-kilter and a wee bit deranged, electronic infused art-indie is the order of the day. Listening to tracks like Lightning Garden will probably give you an idea of the sort of sounds Goldfrapp must have in her dreams whilst she slumbers ... there are a host of nice odd sounds to hook your interest until the next track, which will hopefully be MANIA; the band seem far more at home with the rockier, guitar-led stuff. In particular, the desperately-singing vocal style rings home more with the likes of the wonderful You Say Party! We Say Die! --- Artrocker.com

The band dynamic may appear similar to other boy/girl groups such as Crystal Castles and Glass Candy, yet they retain a dark, brooding sound all their own. --- Art Thief, Digitalbombs.com

I was simply unprepared for the kind of live energy generated by the four of them once they were connected to their instruments [with] a writhing front-woman capable of bellowing out vocals that may or may not have given me chills. In a musical age when we aren't buying if they're not selling, We Are Like the Spider is selling me electronic rainbow sex, and I'm totally willing to shell out my hard-earned dollars. --- The Missouri State Standard

Arguably the most original band in the Springfield area, We Are Like The Spider are a buffet of sounds, and a hell-of-a live show everytime. Part industrial, part punk-rock, part electronica and all overwhelming, the Ozarks' most radical band is making huge waves in the scene. --- Metromix

Drawing strongly from influences in both surrealism and electro dance rock, WE ARE LIKE THE SPIDER weave into their music a fidgety finesse that belies the usual definition of mid-western music. Featuring members of rogue dance-rock DJ collective Black Box Revue, WE ARE LIKE THE SPIDER have been collaborating to create tracks that twist, startle and stab with a kinetic swagger. --- Joshua Wright, Buzzine

Here are some bad ass things about We Are Like the Spider that make them different from other Missouri bands: 1) They play electronic music. 2) They wear a lot of make-up. 3) They don't play indie-pop, but they still use tambourines. 4) It's hard to tell what the hell is going on most of the time… in a good way. 5) Their song "Shame." 6) Their artwork is as good as 95 percent of the stuff you'll see at Art Walk. 7) The vocals on the song "Lightning Garden" would scare the hell out of Marilyn Manson, but the music itself is kind of fun and dance-y. --- Philip Dickey, Metromix.com
