“It really bugs me that some people think they know who I am based on what I may or may not post on social media. ‘Don’t Deny Me’ examines the inhuman desire to be loved or liked through our devices and shows how these black mirrors really keep us apart. When the satellites are destroyed and you have no way of pinging your friends, what on Earth are you going to do?” – Anthony Pedroza, lead singer of Fellow Robot’s sophomore album The Robot’s Guide to Music: Volume 2
Fellow Robot is a sci-fi indie rock band hailing from Long Beach, California. The band originated as a recording project created by Anthony Pedroza and Luis Renteria who had the idea to create a sci-fi concept album. Pedroza and Renteria then recruited Michael Adams, Jon Zell, and Roberto Escobar to help record the project, which led to the creation of a special bond between them, and thus “Fellow Robot” was born.
All five members have previous artistic experience, and each member contributes a unique voice to the band. They decided to create something different, and instead of recording a single album, they are finishing an album trilogy titled The Robot’s Guide to Music. Each volume of the album is sonically different from the previous. Volume 1 consists of folksy vibes and upbeat stories to tell. In contrast, the feel of Volume 2 features a musical representation of the band’s ongoing struggles, consisting of a more traditional, indie-rock sound. We can only wonder what will be in store for Volume 3!
