I’m not going to lie, when I found out California Wives were unsigned, I was completely shocked. Their debut EP Affairs is meticulously crafted and utterly beautiful, drawing from both new wave and post-punk influences. The EP’s single, “Blood Red Youth”, fully displays the Chicago quartet’s enormous talent and has the potential to be an instant classic. Stay tuned for big things in 2011.
