Prom Body

Prom Body


Welcome to the weekend! If you’ve hit that mid-summer moment of ol’ friend overkill and want some new crew to hang with for an evening, try this Tuscon, AZ, band on for size. Prom Body started as a bedroom project (don’t they all these days?) from one Mike Fay about two years ago, and has since smelted into a four-piece to flesh out the sounds live. This debut, not unlike PUJOL’s propulsive propensities, has that digital lo-fi, futon-sprung skizzieness, but the songs and hooks are strong enough that they ought to survive the jump to physical fury. This is some juicy garage skizz that can bubble up via kid-arching vocals, looping melodies, drums that may or may not be human-derived, and an ever present guitar crackle to keeps things dishonest.
 
Give a listen to our premiere of the full album below, which will be ready on LP and cassette for your physical mitts on July 29, via Topaz Records, and scope out the tour dates while you’re at it.
