What do you get when a prolific blogger (Carles from Hipster Runoff) and an equally prolific and strikingly familiar author (Tao Lin) come together to make indie music? That's right, "Jesus Christ." — the indie band.
On their debut single, "Is This Really What You Want?", "Jesus Chris." (the indie band) sounds like a HRO post put to music. And you know what? It's really not that bad. Think of "Jesus Christ." (the indie band) as a melodramatic, blundering Neon Indian/Washed Out/[insert conceptual core band here].
Here is their "Official Press Blurb"
This is not a band—this is a sound project. Tao and Carles are looking to capitalize on emerging music + audio media markets. The product is intended to be something that you can 'authentically empathize with', moreso than a traditional 'indie band.'
"Jesus Christ." (the indie band)'s tentatively titled Is This Really What You Want? EP is 'slated' for a Fall release. The two childhood friends spent 1 month recording the EP in Tao's studio apartment. The EP is a soundscape journey through the challenges of a modern relationship. It will be available digitally, physically, and emotionally.
