Matthew Koma – yes, the same Matthew Koma that collabed with Zedd for some of the 2010’s most iconic EDM hits – is now the lead singer of a band. That band is LA-based outfit Winnetka Bowling League, and includes his brother Kris Mazzarisi, singer/instrumentalist Maddie Jay, and keys player Sam Beresford.
The quarter combine to create indie-leaning rock that’s reminiscent of some of the more iconic bands of the past decade. Songs “Kombucha” and “Diane” channel the energy and lyrical versatility of garage-band era Cage the Elephant, and tunes like “On The 5” and “Slow Dances” evoke Contra-esque Vampire Weekend vibes. Not bad company at all.
