A Conversation With Girltype Behaviors, This Year’s Spring Fling Openers

Girltype Behaviors are Wesleyan’s resident “snack punk” band – purveyors of short, dense DIY punk songs like “Root Vegetable” and “Baby with an iPad.” After loosely playing a few shows together in 2016, the band came together after agreeing to open for Frankie Cosmos in Music House (then at 200 High St) in December 2016.

We first interviewed the band last year, after they released their first EP, Live at WESU 88.1FMThis year, they have a new EP out and are the opening student band for Spring Fling. Wesleying recently sat down with May Klug ’19 (lead vocals & casio), Sallie Fullerton ’18 (guitar), Gemma Shay ’18 (bass), and Shea Fitzpatrick ’18 (vocals and drums) to discuss Spring Fling, touring down the East Coast, forming a band at Wes, and the recent announcement that Grimes and Elon Musk are dating.

An Evening With Girltype Behaviors

An orange light pours down on us from a nearby streetlamp, and what could generously be called a bonfire sits in the center of our circle. The light and fire give the setting a post-apocalyptic vibe that the packets of Capri Sun Roarin-Waters being passed around soften with their sweetness and nostalgia.
