Throwback Thursday: YSA – Wires In the Walls

I became familiar with the term ‘hiatus’ as a kid and all my favorite TV shows ended just as summer was starting. As an adult ‘Hiatus’ suddenly has 2 meanings: 1) really short to moderate break or 2) so long that its forgotten. Well, my favorite band and I do mean FAVORITE band Wires In the Walls officially announced their unspecified ‘hiatus‘.


So today I dedicate my Throwback Thursday to Wires In The Walls and relive some great memories by listening to their last full length album – New Symmetry. yes, I could wallow in fandom depression but I won’t! Nope I’m going to check out out the new various projects. I’ve already seen Beachwood Coyotes and think they’re awesome! So no matter what happens I know more great music will be created and this eases my Wires In the Walls ache.

Thanks Warren the Daves, Denton & Bryan (and Nick!) for partaking in some excellent nights.

Wires In the Walls released their new video ‘In the Rain’. The cool part is the guys filmed, edited and added special effects all on their own. The pooled their talents together and created this cool video.

Wires In the Walls – Residency & EP Release

Last Monday, Wires In the Walls has kicked off a month long residency at the Silverlake Lounge in support of their new EP called ‘Leap, Timber, Leap’ which is available via iTunes and Bandcamp (see link below). And its an EP you should have in you music library! I’m not being bias when I say the guys from Wires are extremely talented – I’m saying it because its true.

One of the things I love about Wires In the Walls is there songwriting, something about their words just vibe with me. They always find a way to tell a story with honest worI love when a song can move me emotionally, make me think or even inspire.

WITW have always found a way move me in some way and this new EP doesn’t disappiont that feeling. With Warren Sroka emotional driven voice backed with the talents of David Irelan, Bryan King, David Sicher and bassist Denton Biety its hard turn off my ipod.

It’s okay if you missed last week’s show (2/4/13) show but if you can make time to come hear some great music!

I *heart* Wires In the Walls

Remember when Carrie from Sex and the City stood on a busy city block in front of a designer shoe store, staring lovingly at a pair of shoes, and in a breathy voice said the now infamous tagline “Hello Lover.”

Well, that’s how I feel about finding L.A. indie band Wires in the Walls…they’re like a new lover. At first it’s the lusty-crush phase where every song makes you smile. You don’t know what the hell they’re saying, but you know you like it. As you listen to those songs over and over, you edge into the honeymoon phase, taking in the lyrics and craving more.

Every time I see them play, my spidey sense tells me I’m seeing history in the making. When my Call Signs EP wasn’t enough I headed over to their MySpace page and found a few older songs listed. I went from lust to full fledged love.

Because I’m a tall girl I quickly adored Gasoline from Call Signs due to the very first line ‘You should wear your heels tonight, honey I don’t mind at all, if you are fifteen feet tall, crackin’ all those necks around you.’ But what sealed the deal for Gasoline being my favorite song is the chorus line ‘It’s exactly as it seems, you got a pocket full of matches, I got a heart of gasoline.’ That melts my heart!

The song that clinches my heart and allows my imagination to flow has to be Strange Weather Patterns from their self-titled EP. SWP is one of those beautiful and haunting songs that show range in the band’s songwriting. When they play this song live I literally have tingles down my back as the lead singer Warren Sroka breathes life into the words ‘I always think of you, whenever anything is at stake, and I always think of you as my finest mistake,’ And watching guitarist David Irelan’s fingers glide across the guitar, you suddenly become mesmerized. Before you know it you’re raising your beer up in the air as the music flows, making it the best song of the night.

It’s just pure energy…..and I like it.

That alone makes them the best damn band in LA.
