PWR BTTM is the New York-based queer punk duo of Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce. Switching off between drums and guitar, the band’s latest release examines their experiences with queerness, gender, and adulthood while living upstate. Full of fun, fuzz, catchy melodies, and extreme finger-tapping, their songs are just too good to not love. They stopped by Serious Business to rock out, share some stories of songs, and to give Maia a fabulous makeover.
