The buzz so far Hung At Heart, the debut album from this Long Beach-bred five-piece – Brooks Nielsen (vocals), Matt Taylor (lead guitar), Scott Montoya (drums), Anthony Perry (bass) and Kyle Straka (keyboards, guitar) – is a collection of Sixties-styled, garage-rock psychedelia-dabbling beach party tunes perfect for long summer evenings, ideally with the surf lapping in the distance and a cool beer in hand.

They’ve toured with The Black Lips and Julian Casablancas, and will be landing on these shores soon.

The Critics say “Kicked-out jams”
