Today's Song of the Day, as chosen by John Richards, host of The Morning Show on KEXP, is "Enchanter" by Karate, Guns and Tanning, a 2022 self-released single.
Indianapolis-based band Karate, Guns & Tanning formed out of the 15-year friendship of bassist/vocalist Valerie Green and keyboardist/vocalist Paige Shedletsky. “We basically share a brain,” Shedletsky told Post-Punk.com.
Together, they craft a dark, riot grrrl-tinged shoegaze, influenced by director David Lynch and writer Hunter S. Thompson. On today's Song of the Day, they evoke the chilly synths of Ladytron with a soaring '80s-style guitar solo in the center. It's a first look at the band's next EP, slated for release this fall.
