Last month saw the release of new LA-based outfit Winnetka Bowling League’s debut single “On The 5”. Described by the Los Angeles Times as “an undeniably anthemic pop song”, it was an impressive first offering from their self titled EP onRCA, to be released on September 21st. Today, they released a second track, “Feeling California” – a further taste of the SoCal band’s witty lyricism and playful pop sensibility. The band have also confirmed two shows around the EP’s release. They’ll be performing at the Mercury Lounge in New York City on September 24thand at the Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on October 1st.

Recently signed to RCA, Winnetka Bowling League are relative new arrivals to the Los Angeles music scene, but on their debut EP they display an impressive knack for crafting finely tuned guitar pop bursting with cinematic Golden State imagery. From Corollas and Subarus to Converse and RC Cola, “Come On Eileen” to pineapple boba and “Gasolina”, Winnetka Bowling League’s lyrics are a cornucopia of pop culture references wrapped up in perfectly calibrated songwriting.
