The Verigolds claim their formation is integrally connected to local painter Celeste Byers and the eclectic scene of Ocean Beach –and they wear enough facepaint to prove it. With a diverse range of instruments and gender alternating vocals, the quartet claims experimental folk and psychedelia groove as their prevailing soundscape, but their latest single, “Grunge,” is a polished pop dazzler of danceable indie rock that lets Jenna “Juniper” Cotton’s ebullient vocals dominate and shine:
“Go my love, I need you to breathe.”
And here’s the song’s collage video of live footage:
The Verigolds will perform on March 9th at The Casbah.
