French duo Total Warr formed when longtime friends Kiki and Guigui joined forces with the goal of creating fun, energetic pop songs. Since then, they’ve made their mark with a handful of singles and EPs that have earned praise from Stereogum, FADER, Blackbook + more. Now, Total Warr is back with a new three-track EP that includes guest vocals from Johnny Siera of The Death Set and an electrically-charged Pixies cover. Packed with irresistible hooks and sing-along choruses, the Loisy EP will be released digitally on February 12th.
“Bambastard” opens the EP with a rich blend of electric guitar, synths, and layer upon layer of harmonies, all set to an infectious beat over guest vocals from The Death Set’s Johnny Siera. Download the FREE “Bambastard” (feat The Death Set”) MP3 where it premiered with Rolling Stone As an additional treat you can warm up with the heartfelt “Outside It Looks Like Snow” MP3, a collaboration with Japanther. Feel free to post & share both songs.
Total Warr’s “Where Is My Mind” (Pixies cover) turns the hit into a buzzing, beat-driven jam complete with a sample from “Empire State of Mind.” “Always Me” slows things down with a swirling foundation of vocals and instrumentation that builds to an explosive climax.
