Pop-song activism with L.A.’s WASI

Be yourself. Easy, right? Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan, leaders of WASI, the L.A.-based, self-proclaimed “riot-pop” group, know that realizing one’s identity can be a challenge. In fact, it’s the theme running through their just-released album—also named Riot Pop—a series of synth-pop songs propelled by bright beats and dark lyrics. The peppy feel of the music contrasts the personal challenges the album addresses, as if to bring positive energy when things seem impossible.
