Today’s song is “Last Night in Tokyo” by Winchester Revival. The Oakland, California natives are comprised of David Rosenheim (vocals, lyrics) Andrew Lund (guitars, backing vocals), Ron Cruz (bass guitar), Kirk Snedeker (drums), and Matt Glick (electronics).
When I first listened to Winchester Revival I was instantly hooked. This sound is gritty, raw and ethereal. Their music reminds me of the best of Brand New’s The Devil and God Are Raging Inside of Me. Their array of influences blend post punk, 70’s pop, with a bit of shoegaze thrown in for good measure. This great mix of distorted guitars and electronics creates an organically dark and alluring musical experience. This song is off the band’s album Burden’s Landing out now.
