The Electric West
A short blast of glammy, gloomy post-punk that will make you reconsider the way you perceive America's left coast and the recent influx of post-punk revivalists. When you think of LA, chances are you think of Hollywood, movie stars, fake tans, conspicuous consumption in non-stop sunshine. The Electric West's music, however, is like a soundtrack for LA's night time - all sleek, driving futurism and Raymond Chandler noir, painted in a seductive, sleek chrome and black pallet...
Some Daggers Wear Red
“The LA outfit has clearly been influenced by the voluminous excellence of 80s synth and new romantic bands, while adding their own sulky spin on California dreaming.” – Fuzzy Logic
“They perfectly capture the feel of “sunny day rain” that The Jesus and Mary Chain sang about. As if Robert Smith visited a beach and stared at the sea in broad daylight.” – The Revue
A dark and noisey art-punk quartet were formed in late 2015 from the remnants of NE Los Angeles post-punk act Flaamingos. Kristine Nevrose (vocals) and Jerry Narrows (guitar) called on friends Bianca Ayala (bass) and Tara Edwards (drums) to complete the lineup, creating an energetic sound influenced by Pylon, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Stooges, The Make-Up etc. A four song demo EP released in Jan 2016 creeped onto indie radio playlists and an energetic live sound generated enough interest for the band to land opening slots for Pylon, Richie Ramone, Dilly Dally and The Warlocks.
Enveloped in a tapestry of glimmering ruby currents, the harmonious spirit of Brass Box tugs at the heartstrings we all possess. It is an ominous ocean of spoken dreams, glassy reverberating strings and thumping percussive hips. Soft goths, lost at sea.
