Beautiful Bodies - "Invincible" | Music 2014 | SXSW

February 4, 2014
When guitarist Thomas Becker approached singer Alicia Solombrino about playing music together, one small thing stood in their way: 4,500 miles to be specific. Becker, a Harvard-educated lawyer, was living in Bolivia, where he was suing the former president for human rights violations, and Solombrino was in Kansas City, making music with bassist Luis Arana. Despite the distance, the three began writing songs together, sending rough recordings back and forth. Quickly, they realized that the chaotic blend of punk, dance, new wave, and rock they were creating clicked, so Becker put his law career on hold and joined the band. Within only a few months, the band released a single that received regular rotation on modern rock and college stations in the Midwest, and they were sharing the stage with groups like Smashing Pumpkins and My Chemical Romance. Becker moved back to the U.S., and the band has been barreling forward ever since.
