If you are still trying to hold onto the last bits of summer, I have found the perfect band for you.
Indie pop-punk group Broncho’s lo-fi sound will get you dancing like it is Fourth of July and evoke memories of summers past (read: making out with your high school sweetheart at the community pool).
The Oklahoma natives debuted in 2011 with their hit album “Can’t Get Past the Lips” which NPR named one of their best garage rock albums of 2011. They’re back this fall with their new album, “Just Enough Hip To Be Woman.”
Fun fact: The track “It’s On,” off their new album, was featured on an episode of our favorite TV show, “Girls.”
If you like similar artists like Best Coast and Bleachers, you’ll like Broncho.
You can see Broncho live tomorrow, Sept. 20, in DC at DC9. Tickets are only $10! But before you go, check out our interview with the band below. I think it will help see how cool these guys are.
What should new listeners know about your music?
We mean well.
Why the name Broncho?
I’m not really sure, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Can you sum up your new album in 140 characters or less?
It’s an exploration in to my childhood, I think about my childhood a lot. It was a magical time. Maybe it’s about the way my childhood is represented in my current dreams.
What can we expect from your live show?
It’s a mixture of the ambiance of the recordings supplemented with the energy needed to pull the songs off live. Some are easier than others to make sense of live. Lots of energy and sexual tension.
How do East Coast fans compare to those in Oklahoma?
Very similar. Both are rowdy. Both know how to drink. Both know how to love, and be there for you.
What are your three tour bus essentials?
A cozy blanket, good company and a salty snack.
What other music are you listening to right now?
I’m currently listening to Billy Bragg’s “Don’t Try This at Home.”
Can’t make it? Stream their new album on Spotify or Check out the new video for “Class Historian” off the new album, below. Vice’s Noisey called it “Deliciously Ridiculous.” I’m just calling it a much better time than the four episodes of “Sister Wives” I was going to watch tonight.
Broncho is on tour in the U.S. now through Nov. 1. Check out their website for dates and ticket info.
