MM Shorts 196: Another From California Wives.

Earlier this month we posted about Chicago new-wave quartet California Wives and their debut full length release Art History. This is their bouncy, uptempo new single Purple, all fizzing guitar melodies and thrumming basslines.

Art History is out on Vagrant on 4th September.

California Wives Announce Debut Album.

Chicago new-wave quartet California Wives has announced the release of its debut Art History LP, out on 4th September via Vagrant. It follows the band’s 2010 EP Affair, which won over both local and national press.

The first taster is the taut, quivering Marianne driven along by big guitars and propulsive percussion and with a nod to the 80s indie rock scene with the catchy chorus and chiming synths. All in all a most palatable offering.

Looking forward to hearing more. Until then, download it below.
