I first stumbled upon Repeater
at a local dive bar in San Diego. They instantly caught my attention with their stage presence, and the fact that they sounded different than the average So-Cal indie rock band. Their post-punk angst and new wave influence made me think they were from the UK, but in fact they hail from sunny Long Beach! Repeater is reminiscent of a cross between The Cure and At The Drive In, with chiming guitar and keyboard sounds and military-like drums. These guys are definitely a band to keep an eye on.
The 5 piece is currently in the midst of writing their full-length debut, "We Walk From Safety", and their current EP, "The Patterns
", is available on iTunes. The band will be playing a show in Hollywood on Monday, November 15th at The Dragonfly. To keep up with their recordings and shows, you can follow them on twitter
