“My M.O.’s album, Bonfire, lives up to the band’s name and features a mix of music that seems to please them. With the band members hailing from all across the world (Texas, Australia and Jamaica), they bring together the sounds of their respective countries and ignore any sense of genre boundaries. The single “Bonfire Man” is a catchy tune under a smooth melody that goes down like a good drink. Later in the album, “Love Me Down” takes the traditional bedroom torch song and turns it into something funkier. On it, Buestami effortlessly moves from singing seductively to lovingly rapping. My M.O. also nods to Vanity 6-influenced ’80s music on “All for Love” with its blipping and dramatic electronics and harmonies. My M.O. proves that if you follow your M.O., then you’ll get something as assured and well-made as ‘Bonfire’.” Read More…

“We love the sound of Brooklyn-based female electronic/indie-pop trio, My M.O whose first single, Bonfire Man (above), is taken off their album, Bonfire, which is set for digital retail release in August.”

“The single “Bonfire Man” is the multi-colored jewel in this princess tiara. It has the tropical sweetness of chillwave but with more traditional pop structure and real girl backbone in it. “Modus Operandi” has the deadpan, electro bad girl come-on of Le Tigre or Peaches. “Love Me Down” is a cool girl love jam that TLC or En Vogue would have killed to get the rights to in the ’90s. (See also: “Paper Chase”) Then “Rock Steady” has this crazy future-dub vibe that makes it another stand out on an album full of them. Basically, My M.O. is every woman all the time.” - Beverly Bryan, MTV Iggy
“Brooklyn-based synthpop trio My M.O. just has their own way of doing things. In the music video for their dreamy, abstracted song“Monkey” they went in for a group marriage. In their latest video for the track “Bonfire Man” they settle a labor dispute by beating up their boss, stealing his van, and running away to found a Utopian community in the woods. They just do things differently, that’s all. Look for the song on their upcoming album “Bonfire” in June.” – Beverly Bryan, MTV Iggy
“Their sublime single “Bonfire Man” blends in noisy guitars, some tasty electro hooks, classic pop vocals, and just a lacing of Caribbean flavor. “What I Want,” the second track on their album Bonfire, marries R&B to dreampop and sprinkles it with tambourine and disco guitar. Fans of Toro y Moi’s bedroom funk will love chilling out while wrapping their brains around this stuff. But they could also definitely get down to it — especially the Pointer Sisters-meets-Le Tigre jam “Paper Chase.” – Beverly, MTV Iggy
“This Brooklyn based band, is comprised of three young women whose musical style is a harmonic blending of sounds that create a thumpin’ pop mix of ethereal beats and lyrics, though it should be said, that because the band has such a subtle hand in culling together such a broad range of sound, it’s nearly impossible to peg them into any specific genre. So, let’s just say this: The music is damn good.”

Here in the U.S. polygamy might be frowned upon (by conservatives), but in the video to My M.O.’s “Monkey,” the band makes you think, “Hey, why not?” It’s funny to think about having your cake and eating it too, but Dion, Katy and Erika, the ladies of My M.O. take the lifestyle more seriously by holding a spiritual ceremony to give their unconventional relationship the respect it deserves. Sorry, it’s not exactly the tale of unrequited love the way Woody Allen would have pictured. My M.O. at least make it to the wedding.

“My M.O. is the type of independent group that have their act together. The Brooklyn-based trio really has to be about their business because they stand for the high-brow term “modus operandi.” There is a method to how the three ladies operate: Dion Mac plays guitar, Erika Buestemi sings lead and Katy Walker provides the nucleus of the group’s keyboard-heavy sound on top of housing My M.O. on her Unemployable Music label. Their M.O. is really DIY. Do It Yourself is such an exhausted expression though, where My M.O. hasn’t even broken a sweat at opening up Brooklyn to their electro/pop offerings and Katy’s regular DJ gigs”.
