Chris Brokaw (Codeine, Come, The Martha's Vineyard Ferries, etc.) met Sarah Black (Kickball, Plain Jane, the Bleeding Hickeys, the Lie-Ons) and Jenn Gori (the Bleeding Hickeys, the Lie-Ons, Pointing Geenas) at a yard show in 2021 and further connected at 40 South St Vintage in Jamaica Plain. Black and Gori asked Brokaw to play guitar on one song of theirs, and he ended up playing on four. The three decided to form a band, dubbing it Lupo Citta, a name inspired by 1970's Italian horror and spaghetti westerns.
"White Bracelet" is an indie rock inspired punk song. It's a noisy punk song that has a deceptively laid back vibe. It feels more like friends having fun than an angry punk song. It's almost three minutes of guitars heavy with fuzz and distortion. The drums have a heavy groove to them, much more than you typically hear in punk and/or indie rock. The whole song kind of sounds like a Sonic Youth album cut that ends up being one of your favorite songs on the album.
You can listen to "White Bracelet" below. Lupo Citta's self-titled album is due out January 12 on 12XU, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on Lupo Citta, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram.
