Nico Vega bio:
Not the solo artist one might assume from the name, Nico Vega is an alterna-rock trio from Los Angeles, CA. The band bio on the group's MySpace page explains the name thusly: "Nico Vega represents a modern day saint. A warrior that has led us to a more fulfilling, lighter way of being. She represents people and unity." (This manifesto goes on for another 228 words, but that's the gist.)
nu prea seamna a Nico, mai mult a Patti Smith pe steroizi vocea, de la Yeah Yeah Yeahs n-am mai auzit asa o voce feinina koioasa...
hah, allmusic confirms:
Featuring singer and lyricist Aja Volkman, a vocal dead ringer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O who claims Janis Joplin and Tina Turner as her primary musical heroes, Nico Vega incorporates those vintage soul and blues influences into their spiky indie rock tunes, suggesting a musical affinity with the likes of the White Stripes, Black Keys, and Fiery Furnaces.
