Vetter Kids emerged from San Antonio and Austin, TX’s dynamic punk scenes having played in Sohns, Dahling and Brother/Ghost before joining together. Their debut EP 3 is the product of a youth spent listening to grunge and punk music, adopting the sounds of their influences and molding them into something new. There’s an undeniably bleak tone to the EP and yet the sweeping atmospheric songwriting, buzzing guitar anthems, and sharp rhythmic bursts sound anything but detached. Vetter Kids are a young band taking their time to perfect a blend of crashing grunge heaviness and spaced out shoegaze bliss.
No, they do not love Pearl Jam. Yes, they do love large speakers, fuzz pedals, Pinkerton era Weezer, Refused, singing during long car rides, Small Brown Bike, The Get Up Kids, Jason Molina, skateboarding, The Smashing Pumpkins, and… pizza.
