Oklahoma rockers BRONCHO are gearing up to give D.C. a taste of their throwback-punk sounds tonight at DC9. The garage punk quartet released their debut album, Can’t Get Passed The Lips, in 2011, recorded out west at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas.
The band drew upon the rough-and-tumble environment of west Texas while recording, with potential brawls in bars abounding and Mexico peeking just south of the border — it wouldn’t be punk rock without a little danger, right?
“You don’t have the control of ‘normal’ American culture out there,” says Ryan Lindsey, BRONCHO’s lead singer.
The band is currently working on a new record that Lindsey says will be a progression from the first album filtered through the lens of controlled chaos.
“The new stuff is really tight, we all come up with the ideas for the songs together, which is a fun process,” he says.
The cool and jangly songs harken back to old school punk, which makes playing D.C. a particularly fun adventure.
“There’s definitely a really cool subculture that seems like it comes just from living in D.C., and it’s pretty powerful.”
You can catch Broncho tonight, Wednesday November 6, at DC9.
