Coup is the second EP from WASI. Finding inspiration in their activism and DIY/punk communities, Couptells their story of growing up as the underdogs in spaces where being their authentic selves wasn’t safe, and how finding the power to create their own space.
From playing sold out feminist and LGBTQ events throughout the west coast to even throwing their own music festival – Women Fuck Shit Up Fest (WFSU FEST) – was what they needed to build the unstoppable community that WASI continues to thrive in and spearhead.
WAS explains, “The songs on this EP touches on our finding the power within ourselves. It touches base on our past as kids feeling lost in tender times to the power we find in our activism and community.”
WASI is based in Los Angeles, California and have upcoming shows in the area and are confirmed to perform at OC Pride on June 24th. They’ve been previously featured with publications such as LA Weekly, FUSE, AfterEllen, Billboard, OC Weekly, Pride, and much more. They’ve also shared the stage with artists such as The Mowgli’s, Moving Units & Madame Gandhi.
