Sometimes a band’s sound and their hometown are inextricable, so tied together that it’s impossible to imagine them being from anywhere else. So it is with The Shelters and Los Angeles, a quartet filled with the swagger of Hollywood stars. It’s as if the Laurel Canyon harmonies of the 1970s spent the glam rock ‘80s in The Viper Room on the Sunset Strip before getting a 2015 update in Silverlake. Fuzzy, bluesy and melodic, it’s no surprise that these kids just got signed to Warner Bros. and got a little L.A. musician named Tom Petty to co-produce their first full-length due out next year. Check out the four tracks from the band’s debut EP above and see them live on the West Coast:
