"Total Rubbish is an all-female trio from Philadelphia. Inspired by disappointing relationships, new beginnings, odd-end jobs, and their Chicago & California garage rock roots, Total Rubbish gives you a guitar-heavy wall of sound with soft, melodic vocals. The band pulls their influence from their heroes, The Dandy Warhols, Veruca Salt, & the Velvet Underground, and blends the sounds of the ’90s with their own modern take. The band signed to Born Losers Records during the pandemic of 2020 for the release of their first EP, “Triple Negative” (produced by Nick Bassett of NOTHING / WHIRR / DEAFHEAVEN). Total Rubbish is Bre Steinfeldt on Bass, Cass Nguyen on Guitar, and Kiki Schiller on drums."

“Honey Ryder” has transported me back to my first experiences with music that I loved like only the teenage soul can – with rabid obsession. The vocals are soothing but deadly like they’re luring you into a bear trap lined with mink. - CVLT NATION
Total Rubbish...make fuzzed-out, heavy, and infectious pop in the spirit of Lush, Garbage, Dandy Warhols, and early Oasis - WXPN
“Honey Ryder” begins with an explosion of sound: grungy, distorted rhythm guitar and a steady beat followed by lead guitar slicing in with a scorching lick — And it heats up until a soft voice washes in and soothes you. - INDIE WITCHES
