Visually, Wampire are a throwback to the 70’s: button-downs with big collars opened at the top, sunglasses, long and wavy hair. If you didn’t know what year it was, you might think the Doobie Brothers just stepped out of the Mystery Mobile. Musically, Wampire proves worthy of their indie buzz. The Portland band, who unsurprisingly are labelmates with STRFKR, don’t so much sing as exert words into the atmosphere. Their musicianship is less Juilliard trained and more bred on the streets as a necessity to survive. Watch these melodic monsters of music – who also like pizza and Indian food buffets! – as they perform live in-studio on Audioasis with DJ Sharlese:
