Formed in 2010 by Ryan Lindsey (vocals, guitar), Broncho made a name for themselves plying their brand of surfy garage punk around their home state before debuting with 2011’s Can’t Get Past the Lips (a swipe at fellow Oklahomans the Flaming Lips, perhaps), released on the now-defunct CQ Records. Now the Tulsa trio returns to the record store racks with Just Enough Hip To Be Woman (Dine Alone Records), which, according to the band bio, “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).”
See the band play the album’s “Class Historian” on Austin radio station KUXT last November here:
