Calpurnia, the 4-piece band from Vancouver led by Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things and It have today released a new single from their debut EP Scout, out June 15 on Royal Mountain Records. “Greyhound” is available for purchase and streaming HERE.
After the release of their debut single “City Boy” in March, Calpurnia have been making waves, with the song being streamed more than 5 million times and hitting #1 on the Global Viral 50 Spotify chart. Calpurnia went on to release their second single “Louie” which is steadily climbing and shows the band’s ability to write infectious guitar driven indie rock. Calpurnia have also announced tour dates in Atlanta, LA and more, a full rundown can be found below.
Scout is everything you’d want it to be, 6 infectious guitar driven tracks, influenced by everyone from Mac DeMarco to the Rolling Stones. The band – which in addition to Wolfhard includes lead guitarist Ayla Tesler-Mabe, a six-string prodigy whose bedroom-shredding viral videos have earned her legions of fans on social media, bassist Jack Anderson and drummer Malcolm Craig – all grew up within walking distance of one another.
The band spent 10 days in Chicago last November recording their debut EP with Twin Peaks’ frontman Cadien Lake James serving as executive producer, Calpurnia are primed to let others in on their inimitable union. “It’s like a four-way Venn diagram,” Anderson says of the band’s coalescing musical tastes that seamlessly come together on their six-song debut, a giddy rock riot that sits comfortably at the intersection of classic rock, punk and angsty blues. “We all have our own sounds and our own influences,” Tesler-Mabe offers, “but somehow when we all come together all our different sounds and styles amalgamate to create something new. It just works.”
