On Abe Vigoda’s last release, the Revival EP, the Los Angeles, CA-based band shed their well established “tropical punk” sound like a snake leaving its past skin behind to move into a darker territory that sounds more like These New Puritans or Liars. Forgive the LOST reference, but they seemed to have gone from “the island” to “the hatch.”
Now they have a brand new track available, “Throwing Shade.” If the jam is any indication of what the rest of band’s fourthcoming album, Crush, will sound like (fist pumping drum- and-basslines fit for the dance floor; layers of synths), we’re in for yet another sonic surprise. I wonder how long until this one gets a remix.
