The Inflorescence came together in 2019. According to the band, “In a largely male-dominated industry, we see how undermined we are for being a no-man band, and we see how being on stage empowers alternative girls and non-binary people.”
The group was founded by teen singer/guitarist Tuesday Denekas (they/them), drummer Milla Merlini (she/her) and bassist Sasha A'Hearn (she/her), who recruited singer (and aspiring guitarist) Charlee Berlin to form the Fluorescents. A self-titled EP was released in 2020, with songs mostly written by Denekas, whose mother is local singer-songwriter Tamar Berk.
After changing their name to The Inflorescence, the band signed to the Kill Rock Stars label, which released their debut single and an Emma Thomas-directed video for "Are You Sorry." Their second single "Tomorrow Night" came with a video directed by Victoria Cunanan and Amel Janae.
Their album Remember What I Look Like dropped June 10, 2022, supported on a summer tour opening for Gloomy Jane.
