 THE LINDA LINDAS

Growing Up

(Epitaph)

ADVERTISEMENT

Tween/teen Asian/Latinx band the Linda Lindas exploded into notoriety after appearing in Amy Poehler’s movie Moxie. And a performance of their song “Racist, Sexist Boy” went viral last spring, instantly resonating across ages and identities. “Growing up isn’t something you can make happen when you want it to,” guitarist/vocalist Lucia de la Garza points out on the title track of the band's first full-length. Yet the foursome intuitively employs punk rock to make headway on these growing pains throughout the album. The energetic and sharp songs are quintessential punk: simple in structure and relatable in message. Echoes of the classic sounds of bands like the Runaways,L7, and Brat mobile are renewed as the Linda Lindas makes its own mark.–ERIN WOLF
