Gauche (mbrs of Priests • Downtown Boys) • Dogs in Ecstasy • L’Resorts

DeLilac on the decks all night in the bar



Merge Records

On July 12, Washington, DC’s Gauche released A People’s History of Gauche, a collective catharsis of anger, frustration, and trauma through creativity. Jason P Barnett, Adrienne CN Berry, Mary Jane Regalado, Pearie Sol, and Daniele Yandel find their agency and joy through creating and performing music together in 36 minutes of groove-filled power punk.

Gauche welcome us into their orbit today with the green screen-friendly music video for “Running.” Watch it again and again on [Stereogum] before pre-ordering A People’s History of Gauche in the Merge store on CD, LP, or limited-edition pink marbled Peak Vinyl, which comes with a flexi of the previously released “Conspiracy Theories.”

Recorded with Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) and Robert Szmurlo in Brooklyn and with Jonah Takagi ( Ex Hex ) in DC, A People’s History of Gauche marks the first time the band worked with people outside of their ranks, resulting in a fuller sound that boasts more intricate instrumentation. From the very first line of album opener “Flash”—“Light’s supposed to show the way, not over-expose it”—Gauche are here to compel us to dance while singing along about society’s universal struggles.

Gauche open for Bikini Kill at a sold-out Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on June 5 but will bring their craft to people across North America this summer. Tickets for all headlining shows go on sale this Friday, April 26 at 10am local time, so grab a few for your friends and get ready to dance!
