RIYL: The Raveonettes, The Coathangers, The Kills

Label: Six Tonnes De Chair

North Carolina garage punk duo Wahyas have something fuzzy and swampy for your ears and loins.  With an attitude that’ll scrape the enamel off your molars, prepare your minds for a beastly hip-shaking double-dose of cool.

Third Eye is classic garage snarl.  The riff is perfectly simple and the middle fingers are firmly pointed upward while the drums get a pounding they won’t forget anytime soon.  It also has perhaps the most memorable lyric I’ve heard in some time, “Won’t you take me to the coast, drink tequila and fuck a ghost.”  Well now.  Pretty excellent vacation plan, I’d say.

In the brief few years that Six Tonnes de Chair Records has been around, they’ve exhibited a profound knowledge of unique punk-branded rawk and rowl, and Wahyas is further proof that the train ain’t stopping for potty breaks.  Keep your ears tuned to their bandcamp, ’cause some big surprises are on the horizon.  Ya heard it here first.
