Blacker Face is a Chicago quintet fronted by gospel singer turned firebrand punk vocalist, Jolene Whatevr. After years of collaboration, Whatevr called on a core of longtime friends to reify a truly idiosyncratic and politically forward-thinking musical vision. Blacker Face earned a reputation in Chicago's DIY punk scene for their first-class musicality and high-energy performances. Their unique fusion of provocative lyricism and transgressive musical arrangement has been labeled Afropunk, Afrofuturist, and Experimental. Their self-released 2018 EP Think Piece was recognized as ''Best Punk Music, May 2018'' on Bandcamp, and paved the way for performances with bands including Guerilla Toss, Pile, Thunderpussy, and Ono. Their aptly titled follow up LP Distinctive Juju (Sooper Records, 2019) is the most comprehensive expression of the group's political and musical vision to date, engaging topics like police brutality, racial power dynamics, and impending climate catastrophe in a genre bend
