Philadelphia electro-pop outfut W.C. Lindsay have announced their new single “Sister,” premiering now via PureVolume. The first new song released since their 2014 full length Easy Victims, Charitable Deceptions, “Sister” furthers the band’s experimentation with genre, with elements of electro-pop, hip-hop and punk rock making their way into the track. “Sister” is the first in a series of singles to be released from W.C. Lindsay through the fall. The band will release a total of three songs over the next few months, touching all corners of the W.C. Lindsay sound.
W.C. Lindsay, an electro-pop group born out of the Philadelphia punk scene, takes pride in their musical duality. Self describing the band’s sound as “The Beastie Boys watching The Breakfast Club at Warped Tour,” frontman William Charles Lindsay found a way to create an authentic identity out of a variety of influences. Raised on a scene of frontmen screaming their hearts out down in the crowd, Lindsay vowed to emulate this passion, no matter what style of music he was to create. “If someone cares enough to come see me, they’re going to get everything.”
The parameters were set forth, and so the music grew. Lindsay’s addition of live drums and bass to his performance pushed the punk live agenda, while his live sampling and lap steel guitar bring a hands-on aesthetic to the electronic sound. The W.C. Lindsay band has floored audiences in cities all over the country and brought it’s unique brand of electro-pop to audiences big and small, with major artists such as B.o.B., Major Lazer, J. Boog, and Twenty One Pilots.
In 2014, W.C. Lindsay released their debut full length Easy Victims, Charitable Deceptions via Big Footprints Records. The album showcased their unique sound and grew their fanbase locally and throughout the US. With each sale of Easy Victims, Charitable Deceptions Big Footprints also gives a donation of $1.00 to Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
