The Silverlake Lounge on Monday is featuring indie bands Wires in the Walls and Hindu Pirates. Every Monday the Lounge will feature some of the best up-and-coming bands in LA, door prizes and giveaways, special guests, a spectacular lighting installation, and more!
LA-based quintet Wires in the Walls explores a textured space between Americana, anthemic indie rock, austere post-punk, and pop. Since the band’s formation in 2009, they have played many of LA’s top venues and toured the east and west coasts. The first single from the record, The Ringer, debuted April 2011 alongside the B-side Soft Shirt.
The days of oh-so-crude adjectives like "surf" and "garage" are well behind O.C.'s Hindu Pirates now. For while the Pirates are in fact darlings of the surf-skate industry, as evidenced by their clean and pristine session last year at Hurley's in-house studio, they're also power pop with just a little bit of grit for traction, sort of like The Strokes when they first came out. (Or Rodney on the ROQ when he first came out, for that matter.) There's a little bit of The Jam in the guitars, a tiny bit of The Stones in the way these songs chug-chug along, perhaps a touch of Robert Pollard's magic touch and maybe some of the pre-Pinkerton Weezer in here, too. Really, this is the kind of guitar band the American suburbs built their reputation on. Put them on your mixtape today; put them in your TV show closing credits tomorrow! (Chris Ziegler).
