As a People
“Local trio As a People make indie rock that’s as charmingly shambolic as it is blisteringly rockin’. It’s impressive that they can manage to sound so schizophrenic on a three-song EP without altering their sonic palette much from song to song. Luckily, lead vocalist Adam Yas’s theatrical yelp keeps the proceedings from becoming too disjointed. The standout song, “Viktor,” plays with the same loud-quiet dynamics as the rest of the EP by getting groovy when you expect it to simply thrash.” (Aaron Sankin, SF Guardian)

Angela Chase is not a bunch of scrawny twenty-year olds from Brooklyn; Angela Chase is an all-girl three piece from San Francisco playing songs influenced by the Breeders, Fugazi, Hum and the Pixies. Another way to describe Angela Chase is to say that three girls in their twenties decided to name their band after a fifteen-year-old girl from the nineties and play music for the parts of their hearts that are still fifteen.
