Dirty, punk-rock inspired garage-indie that’s dark and gritty while still being entirely catchy and worthy of being sung along to, you say? Sign me up, I’ll take five. The San Francisco-bred band can throw down and rock out like their stage is an early ’90s basement show and can effortlessly transition into more atmospheric and melancholic tones, capturing the air of the dingiest of their hometown dive bars. Pulling from all flavors of badassery, the threesome makes some of the best mood music that’s still cool kid-approved.
