Sound of the Week

Male Bonding

This three-man indie-rock band hails from Dalston, UK, and has been making hazy, lo-fi fuzz rock for 2 years. Their first full-legnth studio release Nothing Hurts came out this May. The only current bands out there I would sonically compare them to are the Dum Dum Girls and Surfer Blood. All of their songs are short and full of hooks, and, oh yeah, they Explode!

Fun Facts

  • Their first live show was a house party in 2008 called "Rage!"
  • Members are Robin Christian (Drums), John Webb (Guitar, Vocals) and Kevin Hendrick (Bass, Vocals)
  • In Christian's "Festival Survival Kit" are pajamas and acid.
  • They have toured with Vivian Girls, No Age and Wavves.
  • Other songs to check out are T.U.F.F. and Nothing Remains.
  • All hold full-time jobs. As Christian explains it: "There really isn't any money in music at the level we're at."
