Grey Lantern is delighted to present Fortuna POP! signings Let’s Wrestle, as the trio tour in support of their new self-titled third LP.
‘Their finest collection yet’ – NME
More heartfelt and musically diverse than previous albums, Let’s Wrestle sees the band enter a new phase of maturity and sophistication giving front man Wesley Patrick Gonzalez a forum to showcase his songwriting talents and love of classic pop. Straddling the sounds of the psych pop pioneers of the 60s and the Laurel Canyon cowboys of the 70s, Gonzalez still manages to give the songs on the new album a quintessentially English twist. For the first time, strings and horns are brought in giving the record a bigger, fuller sound, drawing on inspiration from the likes of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Judee Sill, Harry Nilsson, Fairport Convention and The Kinks.
‘Bristling with ideas, it’s an album worth getting to grips with’.- Q
In support, and with roots in garage punk and a strong, sometimes naive, sense of self, is Charles Howl. He pulls together an ever-changing live line-up to create his own brand of cosmic punk. Opening all fresh as fuck and brandishing the ‘sort of shout along indie-infused pop’ that the Japandroids would probably dig (we don’t know, we’ve not asked them) Doctrines are Alcopop! Record’s very punkest kids…
