Punchy, persuasive, and punky, Weimar are not here to mess around with their new single ‘The Girls Of LA’.
Upfront vocals and a booming bassline leap at you from the offset. Whilst the Manchester group describe themselves as a ‘band whose sound incorporates an eclectic range of styles, from post-punk and indie rock to cabaret, chanson, prog rock, avant-garde jazz and more’, it doesn’t take long to realise that this song leans heavier on the post-punk side of things. However, it also manages to remain upbeat and poppy at the same time, which combined with the spirit and vivacity of punk make the perfect recipe for an energetic single release.
The winding vocals of the track transport you straight to Hollywood whether you like it or not. You’re forced through by a thundering rhythm section, giving a nod to 1970s punk rock all the way.
Taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Dancing On A Volcano’, which is scheduled for release on June 24th, ‘The Girls Of LA’ gives you just a taste of what to expect from the record. Although with the kind of range their music seems to encompass it’s hard to say what you can expect.
What you can be certain of is that there will be plenty of energy and moments of musical nostalgia that might just make you smile.
Weimar have been making a name for themselves in the last few years, even being named by Louder Than War Magazine as one of 2019’s ’50 Artists to Watch’. By that reckoning, they might be worth watching, but you can make your own decision on that by giving them a listen down below.
