The Fashion Sense and Social Consciousness of Atari Teenage Riot’s Nic Endo

Tim Gauthier

“As a musician, an icon of female empowerment and a visual force, Japanese-American electronic musician Nic Endo is in a class of her own. Currently tearing up global stages as the female head of Berlin-based digital hardcore group Atari Teenage Riot, she’s been a main player on the international electronic and noise scenes since the 90s. Aside from her innovations as a producer and performer, she’s earned praise as a social crusader who maintains the pioneering feminist spirit of riot grrrls, whom she says “must define the avant-garde” in music. She’s also the spokesmodel for British beauty brand Illamasqua’s new fragrance, Freak – and, like Illamasqua’s cosmetics, the fragrance revels in contrarian attitudes, celebrating nightime mischief and the notion of experimental personal transformations.”

Rolling Stone spoke with Endo as she tours across Europe and prepares for the release of Atari Teenage Riot’s new single, “The Collapse of History,” out January 23rd on Dim Mak.

To help raise awareness, they have released a new video and acoustic version to their single “A Knight”, viewed above.
