WASI, the pop/rock/electro trio from Orange County, CA is thrilled to announce they are headed to the studio with accomplished producer Matt Squire (Youngblood Hawke, Ariana Grande, Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3) to begin recording their debut EP which will be released Summer 2014!

 

The band is still riding the tidal wave of their current release – a double single featuring “Adolescents” and “And The World” out now.

 

“We write fun and simple music while completely driven by a do-it-yourself attitude, and it’s so cool to see that it’s still appreciated,” explains WASI.

 

WASI has been featured in outlets such OC Weekly for their Riot Grrrl- inspired pop rock and are known for their energetic and captivating stage presence. The band has performed for KROQ’s Locals Only Showcase, Ladyfest Los Angeles and just recently wrapped up a successful residency with the famous Silverlake Lounge in Los Angeles. Their song “Adolescents” is already receiving airplay on radio stations in San Diego, CA, Amarillo, TX, Reno, NV, Denver, CO, Los Angeles, CA, and more with international stations in Sweden and New Zealand also spinning. The band has also partnered with non-profit organizations such as Keep A Breast.

Composed of Cosmo (guitar/synth/vocals), Jess (bass/synth/vocals) and Carlo (drums), WASI blends “Closer” era Tegan & Sara with the reminiscent melodies of Blink 182 to create a soundtrack to Southern California nights of skinny-dipping and angsty-garage punk shows.

 

WASI’s self-sustaining momentum is as infectious as their simple melodies and enthusiastic live energy. Their shows are themed dance parties that break down the barrier between musician and audience, and their metaphorically rich lyrics speak to a generation vying to be understood in their own tender time.
