I had planned on blogging about another highlight of Leeds Festival today, but last week I stumbled upon a track sent to me on SoundCloud, and I am so excited to share it that the other will have to wait. It was from some new group by the name of WRSTLRS and immediately I was in love.

Matt Bergeland and John LaMonica are from America. For a more precise location go on Google Maps and type in their name. It won't help. I'm sorry. Extremely new and hurrying to create a website and get their music heard. Laptops and a mic. They create a sound that is instantly likeable. I want to hear more. Agreement that their music is brilliant was confirmed by the other members of my household, with their highly differentiated music tastes (plinky-plonky folk Vs. grime). So Pop Cultureddd will definitely be championing WRSTLRS.

This happens to be my current favourite track:

Did You Come To Save Us by WRSTLRS

Oh, and join their FaceBook group/page/thing! Do it now!

I quite like this, it reminds me of someone but I can't put my finger on who.

I said in conversation that I thought that vocally it was quite Thom Yorke/Anthony & The Johnsons-esque. But underpinned by a completely different sound.

The more I listen, the more I love!

Thom Yorke, yes that's it.

Meant to say I hate folk who don't use vowels, it really annoys me.

Yea, I agree. That would be my only quarm. And I'm starting to get over it. A bit.
