For those who like: Dire Straits, American Wrestlers
Our take: We never thought it would be possible to make Dire Straits sound like a hip indie-rock band, but that’s the best way to describe the latest single by Chicago sextet Los Colognes. One listen of “Backseat Driver” will have you thinking of the ’80s band. Yet the melodies have a contemporary indie sound, similar to the shimmering brilliance of American Wrestlers. The sound represents a change in sound, as Los Colognes once focused on blues and folk rock.
Other news: “Backstreet Driver” is the first single from Los Colognes’ second full-length album, Dos. The record will be release September 4, 2015 via Theory 8.
Weekend Showcase Edition: July 10, 2015
