As Warm Drag, Los Angeles' Paul Quattrone and Vashti Windish blend their garage rock roots with a record store's worth of influences -- including dub, hip-hop, harsh noise, and minimal synth -- into a sexy, subterranean sound on releases such as their 2018 self-titled debut album.
Quattrone, a drummer for Thee Oh Sees and a former member of !!! and Modey Lemon, reconnected with Windish, a vocalist formerly of Golden Triangle and K-Holes, by chance in Los Angeles. The pair soon began mixing her commanding vocals with his sampling skills, and Warm Drag were born. After spending some time gigging and DJ'ing around the city, in August 2018 the duo released Warm Drag on In the Red. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
