The Cold War Kids are your band of the week.
Cold War Kids are an American indie rock band from Long Beach, California. Band members are Nathan Willett (lead vocals, piano, guitar), Jonnie Russell (guitar, vocals, percussion), Matt Maust (bass guitar), and Matt Aveiro (drums). Cold War Kids started in 2004 in historic downtown Fullerton in guitarist/vocalist Jonnie Russell’s apartment above the restaurant Mulberry St. (their first EP title) The band relocated to Whittier, California and began recording their first demos, which ultimately became known as the Mulberry Street EP; released in the spring of 2005. In between self planned tours, the band released two more EPs, With Our Wallets Full and Up in Rags in 2006. These two EPs ultimately led to the overwhelming attention amongst the blogging community, which in turn was the cause of their rapid growth as a band. The band has continued to grow since then and can be heard all over the place…you can check out their song “We Use to Vacation” by clicking on the icon below.
