Pelvis Wrestley Announces Sophomore LP "Andy, or: the Four Horsegirls of the Apocalypse" - Due 2/14/2024
After the successful release of their remastered debut record Vortexas Vorever in February, Austin-based synth pop outfit Pelvis Wrestley has gained a dedicated following locally and beyond. Their talent was further recognized when they were named artist of the month in June by NPR affiliate, KUTX. Vortexas Vorever offered a captivating and unique sonic experience, seamlessly fusing classic country storytelling with synth-pop melodies to create a unique blend of styles made up of equal parts campy indie and pastoral Americana. Frontman and creative force behind the project, Benjamin Violet, crafted this record to challenge and reimagine familiar western themes.
Building on their success, Pelvis Wrestley made their highly anticipated return in October with the release of their powerful synth pop single, “Holy Host”, accompanied by a visually stunning music video. Now, Earth Libraries is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Pelvis Wrestley’s sophomore LP, Andy, or: the Four Horsegirls of the Apocalypse - due February 14, 2024. This record continues to toe the line of Violet’s influences, verging between baroque pop and 70s glam and Americana, reminiscent of Of Montreal, Sparklehorse and Sparks.
Pelvis Wrestley’s unique, yet nostalgic sound and artistic vision continue to captivate listeners, and their forthcoming LP is set to solidify their place as one of the most exciting acts in the Austin indie music scene.
