Leather clad Austin rockers Culture Wars hate wasting time. The trio’s first Alan Moulder-blessed single Money (Gimme, Gimme) has “come blazing out of the gate with an addictive electro-rock sound and swagger” according to PopMatters. Their five-song debut Culture Wars EP is pure adrenaline with production by longtime collaborator Robert Sewell and mixing by Manny Marroquin (Kanye West, Imagine Dragons) and Alan Moulder (The Killers, Nine Inch Nails). The debut release soundly and quickly establishes Culture Wars as a band with their own unique style and vibe. Merging edgy beats by drummer David Grayson, infectious song craft with inventive electronic textures, punchy guitar work by Mic Vredenburgh, insistent melodic hooks and the commanding vocals of charismatic front man Alex Dugan, the band makes vibrant, bracing music that's sonically adventurous yet effortlessly accessible.
