The Uglies Play Tonight!

The Uglies have a lot going on. They’re transitioning to a three-piece sound, and are recording a new EP this summer, with a more doo-wop/garagey direction than past releases. They took a minute to chat about influences and favorites, and you can hear a bit of what they’re about by clicking play below. But the new tunes aren’t online yet, so come out to the show tonight to see what’s cookin’!

 

Who are some of your biggest musical influences?

I think our biggest influences for The Uglies writing style is Beach House, The Strokes, The Walkmen, and The Love Language.

 

What is some music worth sharing? Something new? Local favorites?

The Lemons, a local Chicago band is favorite of mine right now! They are a fun band to wiggle to. They remind me of The Black Lips but way cuter. Here is their Bandcamp: http://thelemons.bandcamp.com/
