Splashh

Not to be confused with Brooklyn's new age R&B band with a similar name, Australia-via-UK quartet Splashh (that's two Hs) formed in early 2012 and have to date released three singles of sunny garage pop. ("All I Wanna Do" is my favorite.) Their warbly, overdriven and sneery sound may remind some of a certain California band with a surfy name, but Splashh embue their sound with some UK indie lineage like New Order, The Wedding Present and '90s shoegazers The Boo Radleys. You can stream a few of their 7"s below.

Splassh are about to splashdown in North America, first at SXSW and then on tour with New Orleans' Generationals. That tour hits Bowery Ballroom on April 22 and tickets are currently on AmEx presale with the regular on-sale happening Friday (2/15) at noon.
