VATTICA represents part of the new wave of alternative rock; inspired by the authentic energy of the iconic, guitar-driven bands of the 90’s and re-imagined through the pop sensibilities and polarizing sociopolitical landscape of today. From their home base in Los Angeles, VATTICA creates their own style of anthemic music (dubbed Queerternative), evocative viral videos, and energetic live performances for everyone hoping for and working towards a better tomorrow for their communities and our world.
VATTICA is led by singer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Alexander Millar (they/them), a nonbinary queer activist. Alex is also a member of Good Trouble Makers, a Black-led anti-racist queer artist collective based in Los Angeles and working internationally.
*The name VATTICA is a cobbled-together word made up of syllables: the Old English word vat (faet), meaning vessel, and the Latin roots vatic/vatical (of or characteristic of a prophet or oracle), and ah (exclamation expressing surprise/irony).
