Female-fronted post-hardcore band Fine Fine Titans is premiering their first single, “Mistress,” today with HM Magazine. The band was originally conceived as a musical outlet for husband and wife team Jenn and Evan Bartlett, later adding guitarist Brit Herron after shifting through some other members as they established their sound. The Grand Rapids-based band will be releasing their debut album, Renaissance, before the end of the year.

The couple met in 2007 after vocalist Jenn’s band performed in the hometown of now-husband Evan. The band, as Fine Fine Titans, officially formed in 2010. Jenn Bartlett spoke about her lyrical inspiration:

“I’m driven by the natural energy and chemistry that not only flows through people but also connects us to animals and nature. I’m a dreamer. I’m inspired by change, and those who are impassioned enough to make positive strides despite hardships.”

The band has also covered Glassjaw’s “Tip Your Bartender,” which you can play below.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
