making whimsical surf-pop may seem like a daunting task when you live states away from the nearest beach, but guitarist and vocalist jared corder was determined to make the music reminiscent of his california birthplace. The band (inspired after corder’s mild success with former band, oh no no), was always intended to be a 3-piece: jared on guitar and vocals, andy herrin on drums, with dreamy female harmony vocals reminiscent of 1960s west coast beach pop.
while working on new sounds with producer, gregory lattimer [albert hammond jr., kink ador, the gills, the grayces], it was suggested that corder’s wife (kristyn) sing in the band. she soon became the missing member.
the trio once described by the nashville scene as (“dick dale’s snot-nosed grandkids”) tracked a single and two additional tracks with lattimer in a basement of their hometown of east nashville in late 2012. the band’s first single “12345678” was released in march 2013, two weeks early – after getting out to local media and began receiving airplay on local favorite independent radio station, lightning 100.
the second single and third singles, “history” and “chemical reaction” released in late 2013 and early 2014, with the their debut full-length LP “Bad Latitude” releasing on March 11th, 2014. You can download the album on the band’s bandcamp page.
