Things ain’t simple anymore. All-night parties turned into hangovers, Lovin’ turned cheatin’, but the wheels keep rollin’. Conversation got convoluted. Analog has gone digital and work got automated. Forty hours is now 24/7 and money isn’t real. Grass is candy and candy is tasteless. Reporting is gossip and truth is fictional. Route 66 has become desolation road. But these guys keep playing what they like and they like what they play...good ol’ fashioned rock’n’roll. Just what the world needs in these complicated times.

At the end of 2016 the world seemed to be headed for a total meltdown. The Los Angeles hills were on fire, there were mass shootings in nightclubs, Zika virus, water crisis, and worst of all somehow a television clown had been elected president. In the midst of these crises, a couple of jam sessions took place between Josh Landau from The Shrine and professional skateboarder Don “Nuge” Nguyen. They instinctively delved into heavy, psychedelic riffs that would last 30 minutes. On a weekend bender in New York City, Josh played an acoustic demo of a short, fast, 2 minute power pop sort of song titled “She Says Goodnight When She Wants To.” Deciding that this style would be something unexpected and totally fresh for both of them, when they returned home to Los Angeles they enlisted their regular wrecking crew of Jordan Jones on second guitar, Ben Brown on synth, and Run The Jewels' producer Wilder Zoby on drums. Their debut show was a private festival in early 2017 hosted by photographer Atiba Jefferson titled “Last Night,” where they played alongside Future Islands, Animal Collective, and Explosions in The Sky.
