Austin’s Midcentury may be fresh, but their members are veterans of the local music scene (namely yacht rock-esque outfit Wonderbitch). Their sound blends decades of intentional and unintentional influences, from contemporary notes by the Bright Light Social Hour to Cut Copy to classic rock with a hint of that 80s sax je ne sai quoi, ultimately creating something fresh and totally their own.
“Warrior” is the group’s debut single and a brilliant display of the quartet’s proclivity for creating a sound that is as intricate as it is catchy. Blending some smokey, 80s rock glory with a contemporary indie mood, “Warrior” charges ahead with full ear worm status.
“Warrior” appears on the band’s debut EP, out in February. Check out their “Warrior” single release show tomorrow night at Swan Dive.
