> BRONCHO and Dine Alone Records are thrilled to announce the release of > Just Enough Hip To Be Woman by sharing the album's first single, > "Class Historian." BRONCHO will also set out on a 30-date North > American tour later this summer that will include dates with Brand New > and stops at Riot Fest in Toronto and Chicago alongside The National, > The Cure, Weezer, City and Colour and Jane's Addiction. > > Just Enough Hip To Be Woman is a bold step forward for BRONCHO. Though > it certainly bears the hallmarks of their previous work — fuzzy, > guitar-driven rock – the production and energy of the record moves > into decidedly sleeker and decidedly more new wave directions (think > Cheap Trick meets the Drive soundtrack meets every great song from > Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets the greatest after-hours party you’ve never been to). > Tracks like “Stay Loose,” “NC-17” and “What” are the kind of pop-rock > that could have easily been beamed in from the same universe that gave > rise to The Cars (or a looser version of The Strokes), while the > album’s first single, “Class Historian” — with its unstoppable “do do > do do” vocal refrain is the kind of song that seems scientifically > engineered to stick in your brain forever and is arguably best played > loudly over a car stereo with the windows down and your long hair > blowing in the breeze. Clocking in at just more than 30 minutes, the > eleven tracks on the new record are a potent statement of intent: an > effortless sounding rock record that dips its toe into a variety of > different styles without ever succumbing to any of them.
