Broncho Details

Broncho
& Low Litas

Broncho and Dine Alone Records are thrilled to announce the release of Just Enough Hip To Be Woman by sharing the album’s first single, “Class Historian.” Broncho will also set out on a 30-date North American tour later this summer that will include dates with Brand New and stops at Riot Fest in Toronto and Chicago alongside The National, The Cure, Weezer, City and Colour and Jane’s Addiction.

Just Enough Hip To Be Woman is a bold step forward for Broncho. Though it certainly bears the hallmarks of their previous work fuzzy, guitar-driven rock – the production and energy of the record moves into decidedly sleeker and decidedly more new wave directions (think Cheap Trick meets the Drive soundtrack meets every great song from Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets the greatest after-hours party you’ve never been to). Tracks like “Stay Loose,” “NC-17” and “What” are the kind of pop-rock that could have easily been beamed in from the same universe that gave rise to The Cars (or a looser version of The Strokes), while the album’s first single, “Class Historian” with its unstoppable “do do do do” vocal refrain is the kind of song that seems scientifically engineered to stick in your brain forever and is arguably best played loudly over a car stereo with the windows down and your long hair blowing in the breeze. Clocking in at just more than 30 minutes, the eleven tracks on the new record are a potent statement of intent: an effortless sounding rock record that dips its toe into a variety of different styles without ever succumbing to any of them.

Low Litas
Low Litas, originally the name given to the musical brain child of Mandii Larsen (lead vocals/guitar). Larsen performed solo with her laptop and guitar until adding Liz Wattoff (drums) to the project. They played as a duo for a bit before adding bass. The current line up is Larsen on guitar, Lucas Neeman on drums and Penny Pitchlynn on bass.

Heavily influenced by the mind altering sounds of My Bloody Valentine and the likes, Larsen’s visceral guitar is dripping wet with effects that both pierce and pulsate. The listening experience is out of body.

Low Litas will release a debut full length LP on Horton Records in August of 2014. The upcoming record will be live-tracked featuring The line-up of Mandii, Penny, and, former drummer, Liz.
