The newbie Louisville trio White Reaper do not wait for introductions in their single Half Bad. They unleash a sonic blitzkrieg, busting out of the gate with powerful drums, stinging gits and cheeky keys. It gets your head bopping right away, slows down towards the middle of the song, and then speeds up again. It’s a wild ride—for about three minutes. The band also has a just a tinge of a psychedelic side that gives it a little boost over the sea of DIY garage punk out there. Their debut six-song EP is scheduled for release on June 24 from Polyvinyl. Meanwhile, get to know White Reaper with Half Bad below.
