Vindigo is a rising Los Angeles alt-rock band who’s opened up the pit for a loyal fanbase to step through. From their community roots as college kids headlining house shows, to their free t-shirt offering for primordial listeners, Vindigo shares an undeniable passion and ever-evolving dialogue with their fanbase. Made up of bandmates Dakota Brubaker (vocals/guitar), Lorenzo Chiodo (lead guitar), Chris Machle (bass), and Austin Greth (drums), Vindigo honors the movements that made them like grunge and the golden age of indie, but is inextricably tied to the present generation.
Their freshly released single “Ur 4 Sale” serves as the title track for their upcoming debut EP. Examining the mechanics of the modern world, Brubaker writes lyrics that delve into critiques on capitalism, profiles on mental health, and a coming-of-age narrative on his transition into adulthood. The single itself speaks volumes to the hypocritical nature of consumer culture over grunge-laced riffs, and pavement-pounding percussion. Take a listen for yourself below:
“Ur 4 Sale” will spike your adrenaline with plummeting notes of bass, singeing electric interludes from Chiodo’s handcrafted guitar, and a hauntingly memorable vocal on the surface. Vocalist Dakota Brubaker sings, “In a fishbowl/ Feeling like some plastic/ Just relaxing/ Cause you know I/ Don’t know what you mean.” Building contrast and tension that swims beneath the subtle verses, grows amidst the burgeoning bridges, and peaks at the deliciously cathartic chorus, “Ur 4 Sale” will have you in it’s throes from the moment you press play.
Vindigo’s upcoming EP Ur 4 Sale was recorded at 4th Street Recording in Santa Monica, CA. Their next show will be Friday October 20th at The Room (view details here). “Ur 4 Sale” is Vindigo’s highly anticipated new release.
