Gringo Star by John Boydston

Today, sees the release of Atlanta’s Gringo Star new single “Watchdog.” The track is off the trio’s forthcoming release Back To The City, out August 24th via Nevado Music. Gringo Star hit the road for a North American tour, starting August 23rd in Boone, NC.

Gringo Star are described as “insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll.Their guitars, keys and vocals create the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti western weirdness, with inspiration from Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, Percy Faith, Sam Cooke, the men working on the chain gang—uh! ah!—they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches.

The band has toured the world with everyone from Cat Power and Feist to The Black Angels and Weezer, and also touring with Wavves, Best Coast, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, The Orwells, and fellow Atlantans The Black Lips
