“Feminism is the fun party to be at”
The Male Gaze kicked off at the beginning of 2018. In addition to Reodica, fellow guitarist Castel radiates a quiet aura of self-possessed punk rock power. Bautista is probably the group’s most experienced member, with that quality so many drummers have, combining grounded dependability and the otherworldly sense that the song they are hearing exists on a subtly different cosmic frequency from the rest of us. Vocalist Dulce, meanwhile, is a strutting, headbanging, rock’n’roll preacher. In the parallel alien world of fashion she’s a world-famous milliner, while onstage she’s the living embodiment of a lifetime of punk rock.
