April March is the project of California singer-songwriter Elinore Blake, formerly of the surfing riot-grrrls Pussywillows, who recorded Spring Fever (1988), of the Shitbirds, that released Famous Recording Artists (Sympathy, 1995), and of the Haves, that released Superbanyair (Columbia, 1997).

In the meantime, she had started the solo career as April March with the single Voo Doo Doll (Kokopop, 1992) and the album Gainsbourgsion (Eurovision, 1994), and a style that borrowed heavily from the French Sixties' pop idols.

The single Chick Habit (Sympathy, 1995) inaugurated her mature stage, that, after Sings Along With the Makers (Sympathy, 1997), reached an apex with the campy and eclectic Sixties' revival of And Los Cincos (Sympathy, 1998); while Chrominance Decoder (Ideal, 1999) found a vehicle to broaden the audience for her impersonation of Francoise Hardy in the age of Pizzicato Five and Stereolab (Sugar, Garcon Glacon, Nothing New).

Triggers (Play It Again Sam, 2003) is a more personal work, less nostalgic towards the Sixties and more contemporary in sound and spirit.
