WASI is a punk duo that blends pop, electronic and hip hop into a self-defined genre called Riot Pop.
Jessie and Merilou met in high school to form a band called The Midol Poppers. Several projects later, WASI was formed to create a reminiscent sound that brings you back to those So Cal nights of skinny dipping and angsty garage punk shows. Combining their influences of The Clash, Pussy Riot and MIA, WASI is "...the type of band that requires just a few minutes to win over an unfamiliar listener with its sturdy melodies, sun-drenched arrangements and wholly inviting attitude." - Billboard
