On this episode of BTR Live Studio at Home, DC based rock band, BRNDA plays us some tunes. Jen sits down and talks with Leah Gage, Torrey Sanders, and Dave Lesser about their new album, the impact of the pandemic on the music scene, and their love for touring.
BRNDA is a band from Washington, DC who have two rules: No covers, and no love songs. For this session, Leah Gage, Dave Lesser, Torrey Sanders, and Mark McInerney masked up to dish out some post-punk and indie rock from their garage practice space, and even got to have a bit of an audience! Thanks For Playing is available now from Banana Tapes. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
