Details"The Brooklyn-based Aye Nako have built their reputation by purposefully keeping to D.I.Y. circles that specifically promote their own community-oriented, anti-capitalist, LGBTQ-friendly ideology. Bassist Joe McCann, vocalist/guitarist Mars Ganito, guitarist Jade Payne, and drummer Angie Boylan have stressed repeatedly that their politics are essential to their standing as queer, multi-racial, multi-gendered musicians. Yet the pop punk style they've perfected over the past few years has, historically, run contrary to that identity. Especially as the genre was enjoying its peak commercial successes in the early 2000s, pop punk's social conservatism helped market an innocuous breed of suburban, digestible rebellion to as wide an American population as possible." - Pitchfork.
