Los Angeles band Wild Wing is the coming together of four lifelong friends, originally from the San Fernando Valley. The quartet blend together a variety of genres, including but not limited to country, synth-punk, and garage rock, with their lyrics peppered with political satire. Their fourth release, ‘New Futures’, is set to come out on June 21. We preview the track ‘Me ‘n Mine’.
doubleVee are Allan and Barb Vest (hence the duo’s name), who are partners in life as well as in music. They launched in 2012 (and married in 2015) and are set to release their new EP, ‘Songs for Birds and Bats’ this Friday, April 12. ‘Ladder for the People’ is from that EP, and has a throwback sort of sound something akin to that of DEVO, together with a fun music video.
Room Full Of Strangers have found themselves compared to the likes of Mac Demarco and Modern Lovers’ Jonathan Richman, to The Dictators, and other proto and early punk bands. They’ve even been called a tougher DEVO – high praise indeed. Regardless of all this, Room Full Of Strangers are rock and roll all the way through to their bones – taking their approach to life as well as their music.
