About Us



Photo by Nikki Krivanek

We're Basic Bitches, a riot-grrrl/garage rock duo from Brooklyn (and a couple of other places). Naomi sings and plays guitar, Krystal plays drums and does some vocals. 
We write songs with solid hooks and choruses you can shout along to. If you're a fan of Sleater Kinney, Screaming Females, Ex Hex, The Gossip, Wimps, Jesus Lizard, The White Stripes, and Joan Jett, you're going to like us, too.
