Building a buzz via high-powered performances and a smart sense of humor is impressive enough, but Athens-based dancer rockers Reptar has the distinctive style and talent to back up the hype in the studio, too. The band, made up of drummer Andrew McFarland, bassist Ryan Engleberger, guitarist/lead singer Graham Ulicny, and keyboardist William Kennedy, has won over countless college students and local music enthusiasts with their vibrant performances. Reptar teamed up with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Matt & Kim, Givers) and is slated to release their debut EP Oblangle Fizz Y’all, finally giving audiences something to add to their music libraries and evoke memories of the dance-heavy performances.
Reptar is set to play at Lollapalooza next month, which leaves just enough time to get acquainted with their new EP. While it isn’t released until August 2 via Vagrant Records, but you can listen to the whole release in the player below.
