From the increasingly fertile Louisville, KY, DIY scene emerges White Reaper – an incandescent power trio who is ready and willing to blow out eardrums far and wide.
The band – formed by Tony Esposito (vocals/guitar) and twin brothers Nick (drums) and Sam Wilkerson (bass) -- combines sparkling hooks and fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing an ounce of sonic bite.
In the fall of 2015, White Reaper headed up to Treehouse Records in Chicago to record with their friends Daddy Issues. The result is a quick and dirty (and totally badass) split 7", with a grunge-powered burnout wish list "Drop Out" on the A-side and White Reaper's nervy, glam-tinged power-pop anthem "Middle of America" on the B-side. Out on Christmas day, the split 7" is limited to 300 random colored records... mostly in the blood-red to bruise-purple spectrum.
For a behind the scenes look at their recording session, jump over to Consequence of Sound's Treehouse Sessions.
