For lovers of a dark, musically chaotic sound who mourn the reductive feel and eventual irrelevance of the “witch house” genre, Seattle-based artist Guayaba (who uses both she and they pronouns) is a welcome addition to the pantheon of thriving, genre-bending experimental musicians.

With songs that use soul, jazz, Goth, metal, and electronic sounds, along with references to insect imagery that discuss toxic relationships and racial identity, Guayaba is a talented artist who defies trite comparisons. Formerly known as Aeon Fux, recently Guayaba is opting for a name that’s less tongue-in-cheek and more of a nod to their cultural roots and the themes they seek to explore. “I did begin Aeon Fux with a cyberpunk feel,” says Guayaba. “As fun and tongue-in-cheek as it was, I wanted to be taken a bit more seriously and didn’t want to limit myself from any opportunities because of it.”

Guayaba has accumulated quite the Internet fan base over the years; their candid openness on social media about their struggles with racism, gender identity, and mental health have proven to be a comforting beacon to young fans dealing with these same issues. When asked about their Internet “celeb” status, Guayaba expresses complicated emotions. “I think what began as an experiment in vulnerability grew into something much bigger than myself.”
