Hailing from San Luis Obispo, CA, Hayley and the Crushers recently released a new single. "Church of Flag" is this glorious mixture of power pop, pop punk, and glam rock. It sounds as if Letters to Cleo leaned more heavily into influences like the Ramones and Blondie and tried to get on the Warped Tour back in the 90's. It's dripping with attitude and fun, and is one of the catchiest rock songs we've heard so far this year.
Not to mention, they have one of the greatest Bandcamp bios of all time:
"One part punk-pop, one part sunny surf, all 'poolside glitter trash,' San Luis Obispo, California's Hayley and the Crushers offer up a tsunami of bold, bad girl fun. Fizzy, frothy, and still a little dangerous, be careful just how far you paddle out. There's blood in the water and the mermaids in this part of the Crusherverse are known to nibble."
You can watch the video for "Church of Flag" below. The song is available as a single now on Bandcamp. Hayley and the Crushers have an album coming out this year on Rum Bar Records. For more on Hayley and the Crushers, check out their website.
