Artist to Watch: Duchess Says
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Who: Duchess Says
Location: Montreal, Canada
Fronted by the keytar-wielding vocalist Annie-Claude Deschênes, the Montreal folks that comprise Duchess Says are a live force who animatedly rip through dance-punk numbers that owe as much to The Slits as they do Don Caballero. Deschênes packs so much punch into her live shows—expect runny mascara, ripped clothing, and much stage-diving—that she even sidelined herself after an on-stage injury, forcing the band to cancel its debut U.S. tour last year. Keep an eye out for the make-up tour in ’09.
