The Herms

Having recently relocated from the Bay Area to Los Angeles, The Herms add true grit and originality to the sun-fried, post-punk scene of Southern California. Born in the co-ops of Berkeley, nurtured in the streets of San Francisco (in between the dot booms), and finally finding residence on the East side of LA, The Herms bring a frenetic, schizophrenic charm to the lo-fi reemergence. As John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees puts it: “No one sounds like The Herms. No one sounds like Matt Lutz.” Vlad Duran’s unique, melodic basslines and Mike Leyva’s angular drum stomp fill out the other points of the sonic triangle.
