Mr Twin Sister
Mr Twin Sister
After growing up together on Long Island, Mr Twin Sister formed in 2008 under the name Twin Sister, releasing two EPs - Vampires with Dreaming Kids in 2008, and Color Your Life in 2010 - to significant critical acclaim. The band signed to Domino Records for their debut LP, In Heaven, released in 2011, and in 2012 their song “Meet the Frownies” was sampled by Kendrick Lamar and Dr Dre on “The Recipe”. In 2013 lead singer Andrea Estella was cast in the Veronica Mars movie, with two songs by the band featured on the soundtrack. Having left Domino and changed the name to Mr Twin Sister in response to a legal threat, the band self-released Mr Twin Sister in 2014, which was recognized as one of the best albums of the year by Pitchfork, New York Magazine, Time Magazine, Gorilla vs Bear, Huffington Post, and many others.
Sateen
Sateen
In 2014 the married pop music duo Sateen emerged from a cloud of glitter, sharing their message of positivity, love and glamour with all of NYC. The betrothed duo is comprised of drag queen Exquisite, and bio queen, Miss Queen Sateen. Since their formation, the couple have “educated the children” on the art of Feeling Fancy, Treating Yaself, and telling off online haters with their latest music video, Karmas Gonna Get Ya. The music of Sateen is infectiously positive, vocal-centric pop with empowering lyrics that you make you want to dance.

Together, Sateen has perfected the art of swirling and twirling while hosting many events. Working alongside innumerable Icons and Legends of the underground queer NYC scene they have established themselves as an undeniable force. Whether at a large Manhattan fashion party or a small Brooklyn bar, these queens have performed, DJ’ed and sashayed with unfettered aplomb.

Taking inspiration from the house and disco divas of yesteryear, Sateen’s music is nonetheless imbued with the contemporary drag and club culture from whence they emerged. But, don’t get it twisted - despite their pedigree in the underground scene, they strive to make pop music for the ears of everyone!

Sateen’s approach is entirely DIY, and they have plans to independently release a debut EP and a new music video “as soon as possible”. But for now, they are constantly writing, recording, performing and preaching the Sateen lifestyle. After all, Sateen is a lifestyle—it’s about opening your mind, loving yourself, being strong and sexy, and dancing the night away.
