“50 Best Things We Saw at SXSW 2015.” — RollingStone
Austin, TX power-pop/jazz rock/80s R&B genre-splicing quartet Wonderbitch premiere the first track from their forthcoming sophomore release today via PopMatters. The effervescent tune “Josanna” is available to hear & share HERE. (Direct Soundcloud link HERE.)
The band’s self-titled sophomore release is out on CD and digital on July 21st. Their 7-song debut Wonderbitch Loves You was released in summer 2013.
I n the winter of 2013, Wonderbitch sprouted from a fertile galaxy of childhood friends and stagnant basement projects in the small, musical town of Bloomington, Indiana. After creating a remarkably lush and groovy bedroom debut album with themes of unconditional love, sex, and healing, the band transplanted to Austin to hone their chops and to always have a stage to play on. Upon arrival, Wonderbitch picked up two Texan boys with a propensity towards rocking out, doubling the drive to grow and play on an increasing scale.
On top of a moody English foundation of Pink Floyd, Genesis and Muse, Wonderbitch wraps up cool Steely Dan musicality, Texas psychedelia, video games, and the nostalgic sparkle of smooth early 80s pop. Wonderbitch currently writes, records and performs regionally and nationally as they continue to cultivate their show into a lovingly explosive and enveloping experience to bring to stages large and medium.
