Winnetka Bowling League’s debut single “On The 5,” a love letter to the baked asphalt of a California freeway, perfectly encapsulated the melancholy of a past romance conducted under blistering sunshine. The track, released at the tail end of the summer, was an immediate hit at college radio where it spent three weeks in the top 5, was playlisted on Sirius XM’s’ AltNation, and has received over 1,000,000 streams to date. Not bad for the first release from a newly formed band of musical compadres named for their singer’s bowling league in the San Fernando Valley.
Definitely the first time you’ve heard “non fat” rhymed with “Prozac,” “Kombucha,” their new track out today, is another end-of-a-relationship anthem. Winnetka Bowling League’s penchant for cars and freeways continues, but instead of “On The 5”s “‘92 Subaru,” the protagonist of “Kombucha” is ending a relationship before hitting the road in “my Honda on the 101.” Directed by Zach Sekuler, the video takes place in the Elliott Salter Pawn Shop in West Hollywood.
Available now on DSPs, “Kombucha” is the first new track since the release of last year’s self titled EP.
