The band formed in 2015 when 18-year-old lead vocalist Arrow de Wilde first met guitarist Henri Cash at their Echo Park high school. Shortly thereafter they were joined by the rhythm section of Austin Smith (drums) and Tim Franco (bass). The foursome play with squalling riffs and thundering beats, and their incendiary live shows, fronted by de Wilde’s otherworldly magnetism, are truly captivating.
Recorded by Ryan Adams on analog tape at his Pax-Am studio, the ten track album (flying past at an incendiary 28 minutes...) channels the Stooges, the Cramps and any number of the more excitingly-unhinged bands of the last forty years whilst avoiding pastiche. They have a lot to say, it's just impossible not to get caught up in the instant gratification of the delivery.
Available as a very limited white vinyl indie shop pressing.
