Genuine Leather: “The Enemy”

You know those bands that you just wanna shout to everyone and everything about? That’s kinda how I feel about local act Genuine Leather. A few months back, I went to see a friend’s band play at Cheer Up Charlies, and they happened to open the show. Their caffeinated power pop hit me right in my musical sweet spot, and I became a fan on the spot. You should too.

The band, fronted by The Gorgeous Hands‘ Chris Galis, has already released a slew of singles–including personal fave “The Viper (Found a Good Place for my Love)“–ahead of a planned (but at press time, unnamed) full-length. The latest is a percolating, head-bobbing ballad called “The Enemy.” Without gilding the lily more than I already have, suffice it to say that Genuine Leather should be on your short list of of local acts to see as soon as possible. They’re definitely on mine.
