A product of generations of underground music in L.A. and beyond, The LindaLindas debut, Growing Up, channels classic punk, post punk, power pop, newwave, and other surprises into timelessly catchy and cool songs sung by all fourmemberseach with her own style and energy. A handful of cuts have alreadybeen previewed at shows and enthusiastically approved by diehard followers in thepit at L.A.s DIY punk institution The Smell and Head in the Cloud festival goers atThe Rose Bowl alike. The Linda Lindas are stoked to unleash Growing Up.

The Linda Lindas first played together as members of a pickup new wave coverband of kids assembled by Kristin Kontrol (Dum Dum Girls) for Girlschool LA in2018 and then formed their own garage punk group just for fun. Sisters Mila dela Garza (drummer, now 11) and Lucia de la Garza (guitar, 14), cousin Eloise Wong(bass, 13), and family friend Bela Salazar (guitar, 17) developed their chops as regulars at all-ages matinees in Chinatown, where they played with original L.A. punks like The Dils,Phranc, and Alley Cats; went on to open for riot grrrl legends Bikini Kill and architect Alice Bag aswell as DIY heavyweights Best Coast and Bleached; and were eventually featured in AmyPoehlers movie Moxie.

When the pandemic put a pause on shows, The Linda Lindas went on to self-releasea four-song EP, make their own videos and grow a following beyond Los Angeles.But they never expected or could have even dreamed that their performanceof Racist, Sexist Boy for the Los Angeles Public Library in May 2021 wouldtake them from punk shows to TV shows.

A month later, when the school year ended and summer began, The Linda Lindas got to work on their first full-lengthLP. Having written a mountain of new material individuallywhile sheltering in place and attending class virtually, theband was more than ready to enter the studio where Mila andLucias dad (and Eloises uncle and Belas uncle) Carlos de la Garza oversawrecording and production. The Grammy-winning producers work includesParamore, Bad Religion, Best Coast, and Bleached.
