the splinters


These ladies are releasing their first full length in March on Double Negative. They're currently playing shows and are appearing with The Fresh & Onlys and Foreign Born next week on Feb 24 in San Fransisco. Go! (PS. San Fransisco you are ruling my world right now.)

Like loads of other bands currently circulating, theirs is low fi garage with a 60s girl group vibe. But I think they do it a lot better than many of those other bands. They look tight and confident, and I feel like they would jump at the chance to work in a studio and polish their sound a little if offered that opportunity. DIY or die sure, but sometimes a little level readjustment and smoothing out can go a long way. I'm excited to watch where these guys go... SXSW here they come
