Beehive consists of Vocalist/Producer Alethea 'Butterfly Beats' and Guitarist/Vocalist David Miller. This duo creates electronic rhythms and soundscapes, combined with emotive vocals, and commanding guitar tones that are organic yet modern sounding to craft hook laden, melodic, and powerful indie-rock/electronic/pop songs.
SPIN Magazine voted Beehive as one of the Top 8 Undiscovered Bands last year. In addition, the band's debut release, ''Pretty Little Thieves'' charted at number 1 at several college radio stations in the US and Canada within the first week of its release, as well as in the top 10 of over 100 colleges across the nation.

The Tacoma Volcano calls Beehive ''Giant, cool and fun... technology and humans interfacing, causing a tidal wave of infectious energy.''
