Get Up On This With Jensen Karp: Wallows

Every Thursday morning Jensen Karp gets us up on something new

February 28, 2019

Every Thursday morning Jensen Karp brings our attention to something that we may not know about yet or something we may have overlooked in the past. 

Now it's time to "Get Up On This."

This week Jensen got us up on a KROQ Locals Only band, Wallows. It is a Los Angeles based band that includes Cole Preston, Braedon Lemasters, and Dylan Minnette. Dylan is also the star of the Netflix Original show 13 Reasons Why. So if you attend one of their shows, you might be surrounded by a bunch of teenagers. They got together back in 2017 while still in High School and have been releasing music ever since.

They put out their debut E.P. in 2018 and now have a brand new album coming out March 22nd called Nothing Happens. Jensen described their sound as an L.A. Beach Boys version of The Strokes. With a blending of sounds that includes influences from 80’s New Wave and 90’s Grunge, they’re definitely one to watch.

This year they will be featured at both weekends of Coachella. They will also be on a headlining tour this year and are making a stop at The Fonda Theater for a sold out show on May 23rd, but good news for those who slept: a second show has been added for May 24th! They will be touring all over the world, so keep an eye out for a city near you.

The first single is Are You Bored Yet is out now, featuring Clairo, watch the video here:

They were recently on Jimmy Fallon a few weeks ago, check out that performance here:
