Social Studies / Quiet Corral
Social Studies crafts intricate songs that combine angular indie rock and classic twee-pop. What distinguishes the San Francisco-based group is its eclectic, complex songwriting: unusual structures and mathy beats are tempered by soft edges and danceable Casio hooks. Moody, defiant and hopeful, the lyrics celebrate duality through themes of discontent, violence, innocence, renewal, nostalgia, regret and joy. Touring on its debut LP, “Wind Up Wooden Heart,” Social Studies joins Quiet Corral at The Replay Lounge.
