Swiss trio Hot Like Sushi had quite the year in 2018 with the release of their singles trilogy, plenty of radio airplay and over 250,000 Spotify streams. The guitar-dance-pop band consisting of Elias von Arx (vocals, guitar), Luka Cornman (synths, vocals) and Samuel Schwalm (drums) flew from Switzerland to Los Angeles and injected themselves into the local music scene, while soaking up the West Coast swag. While in the sunshine state, Hot Like Sushi teamed up with Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum record producer and mix engineer Benny Steele (Justin Bieber, Pitbull/Kesha, Jason Derulo) on a handful of songs as they described "Swag Pop." One of the gems created in the sessions is the single "Bitch Repellent." The tongue in cheek track is centered on Elias von Arx as he talks about the fact that he can hardly save himself from admirers because of his good looks; the only thing that can help him is his Bitch Repellent.
