Long Beach, California natives Wargirl create analog garage rock for a new era.
Inspired by current events and driven by world music grooves, this sextet combines dub-centered rhythms (with two percussionists, no less) with lyrics of substance. This is music that matters but also, music that makes you want to get down.
WARGIRL co-founder Matt Wignall is no stranger to eclectic sounds as well as stand out ensemble bands. As the mastermind producer / owner of the garage based Tackyland Studio, where Cold War Kids early anthems “Hang Me Up To Dry” and “Hospital Beds” were recorded. Anchored by standout front woman Samantha Parks (daughter of 70s funk singer James Lafayette "Bull" Parks of Bull & The Matadors), and Wignall on guitar. Tamara Raye and Enya Preston play bass and keys and the six piece is rounded out by dueling percussionists Erick Diego Nieto and Jeff Suri. Some of the bands early EP recordings featured Cold War Kids’ own Nathan Willet and Matt Maust on bass and organ.
