Rebel and a Basketcase 

Music from Evan Rachel Wood and Zach VIlla

They were just one of the openers, but nobody seemed to have relayed that message to dynamic duo Rebel and a Basketcase as they hit the stage at the Satellite Thursday night. Comprised around the talents of Evan Rachel Wood and Zach Villa, everything about the two screams 80’s rock and glam; from their very name (a homage to The Breakfast Club characters), to the wild serenades they throw at the crowd that are equal parts bleeding-heart howlers and moody atmospheric bass thumpers.' - read full review by pressing this button -

'Their music is robust with various titillating flavors of the musical rainbow, and their lyrics are both personal and inspiring. Not to mention, the duo wrote and self-produced every inch of their forthcoming album. Don’t be surprised if these two play Coachella next year, and embark on a tour sooner than later.' - read full ep review by pressing this button - 

'Edgy, youthful and insanely Boy George-y -- those are probably the best phrases to describe Rebel and A Basketcase, the new electro-pop duo forged by actress Evan Rachel Wood and Juilliard-trained actor Zach Villa, in an effort to "go back and reclaim" defining moments from their teenage years.' - read full interview by pressing this button - 

'On Wednesday, they dropped their debut single, “Oh Yeah,” along with its trippy accompanying video, which features lots of glitter, electrical currents, and eye-catching juxtapositions between the bleak and the fantastical. There’s also Wood not-so-discreetly giving her best David Bowie impression, which she pretty much nails.' - read full article by pressing this button -

'Now, Wood is taking a deep dive into musical waters, teaming with actor and musician Zach Villa in the duo Rebel and a Basketcase. The pair, who met last year while performing together in a John Hughes-themed cabaret in L.A. (their band moniker is a reference to the characters played by Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson in the Hughes-directed The Breakfast Club), have just released their first song, a buoyant pop-rocker titled "Oh Yeah" whose synth-y, Eighties-esque sound tips the hat to the music heard in some of Hughes' classic teen films.' - read full article by pressing this button -

''Oh Yeah' is the world’s first taste of the duo’s magic, and man, does it cast a compelling spell. The glam and gender-fluidity are Rebel and a Basketcase’s most notable characteristics. It’s authentic, future-leaning, and downright fun. Wood’s voice is equally as alluring, going from delicate falsettos to robust beltings with ease. All signs point to a glittering success for Rebel and a Basketcase. Now, all we want is more. More, more, more!' - read full article by pressing this button -
