WHO: Whom Do You Work For?

WHAT: a texture-rich post-punk trio with deeper bass than So So Def

As a duo, Whom Do You Work For?'s manic live sets slipped in and out of post-disco fury and head-bobbing, bass-driven dance music. Bradley Black's whispered vocals, knob twisting, pedal pushing and percussion keep up with Jonathan Hight's live drums. With the addition of Isidro Robinson, the trio is laser focused. "I'm playing exclusively guitar now," Black says. As a trio, the band adds more room for textures and "nuances and details — a lot more complexity," Black says. On single "Panic," muted bass pulses and drum taps open to vocal harmonies and throbbing guitars. The band releases its titular EP Sept. 13, and soon will release a cassette tape on Waypoint Tapes. — Woodward
