Raw Geronimo's follow up 7" Single

Following up on their acclaimed debut 7” “Faustine”, Los Angeles’ Raw Geronimo returns in the new year with their next offering for Neurotic Yell Records with two new jams that expand on the band’s unique angular take on post-punk, surf, garage-pop, and R&B.

Equally channeling the sweetness of Ronnie Spector and the magnetic intensity of Siouxsie, Raw Geronimo is the brainchild of multi instrumentalist/singer Laena Geronimo. Forming the band in early 2011, the group has quickly built a reputation for their mesmerizing live tribal séance and high-energy performances, making them an act to watch out for in 2012.

This upcoming release is the first recorded as a full band; showcasing a bigger sound. The new 7” finds the band expanding upon their previous output, adding more baroque influences like late 70s art-rock (ala Bowie) with the twang of 50s rock and roll. The A-side “Role Play” takes familiar templates of garage rock and pop-punk and turns it inside out with Geronimo’s dark, coo-ing storytelling; creating something more alluring and fresh than a sum of it’s parts. The B-side “Shot On The Spot” offers a great surprise with its Gypsy/Western strut while still working seamlessly into the band’s wildly eclectic, ever-expanding sound.
