Louisville band to release debut EP in June on Polyvinyl

STREAM: “Conspirator” –

From the increasingly fertile DIY scene of Louisville, KY, emerges White Reaper – an incandescent power trio who is ready and willing to blow out eardrums far and wide.

The band – formed by Tony Esposito (vocals/guitar) and twin brothers Nick (drums) and Sam Wilkerson (bass) — combines sparkling hooks and fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing an ounce of sonic bite.

Having cut their teeth playing a number of raucous local and regional shows that left everyone’s ears ringing and no pores devoid of sweat, the group is ready to unleash their eponymous debut EP — a six-song blitzkrieg that traces the band’s present and future. While dingy and jangly single “Conspirator” scratches the itch left behind by Jay Reatard, infectious stand outs “Cool” and “Funn” will undoubtedly make the ears of the Ty Segall/Oh Sees sect perk up.

Affectionately known as “Tony and the Twins,” White Reaper has six tracks in their pocket, a few future surprises up their sleeves, a thunderous live show, and they’re just getting started….
