Leggy's Vero Allaer is simply "done kissing boys who can't even hold [her] attention." Aren't we all, though? Raw, catchy as hell, and utterly dance-able, Leggy are the Cincinnati trio making raucous garage tunes smart enough to ditch that loser. For example, the line, "I thought he was Adonis/but he broke my little heart/like it was just a pinky promise?" You've got to love a band that's down to throw a little shade at a Greek God.

The self-described "blond-heavy nü garage indie punk poptarts" are unleashing their latest killer EP titled Dang today on Manic Static. Lucky for you, it's premiering fully below. The Ohio band may have a soft spot for their native Midwest, but this amount of reverb suggests the ocean is just a shimmy and a shake away. The ead single in particular, "Even Lana" (LDR is a mutual band influence), crackles like sand in the amp.

Leggy hits the road today for a tour that starts in Detroit and heads east. Catch the show and thank us in advance because this is an especially fun band with a bright future. Dates lited below.
