David Wingo, a film composer from Austin, developed his group, Ola Podrida, from a recording project to a live band while living in NYC. Though their time in New York was brief — only about 3 years before Wingo took it back to Texas — it was a productive time that saw the band sharing stages with some big names, from Fleet Foxes and Beach House to a spot at All Tomorrow’s Parties, curated by Explosions In The Sky. Now a fully-collaborative four-piece band, Ola Podrida continues to craft catchy indie rock with cinematic touches.
Featured Song: “Staying In”
