Los Angeles indie band White Arrows have just came out with a new single “We Can’t Ever Die,” mixed with funky vibes, vibrant synths, and embracing lead vocals. Make sure to take a listen because this is one tune you can’t miss out on.
White Arrows started as “just something to do” while frontman Mickey Church was at NYU. His work caught some blog love and when Mickey moved back to his hometown LA, White Arrows became a band–including his little brother Henry.
I snatched the Church brothers, Mickey and Henry, right after they left the stage. (You can hear how tired they are from the show.) Mickey has lived an interesting life. He was was born legally blind, but later regained his sight, and he majored in shamanistic rituals in university. So of course I got him to spill all the details! Listen to our chat.
White Arrows “Roll Forever” Mickey tells me the interesting story behind this track.
White Arrows “Coming or Going” (RAC remix) An upbeat song with dark lyrics made even more awesome by RAC.
You can see White Arrows in action Saturday, June 21 at Malkin Bowl opening for The Neighbourhood. See you there!

Here it is u guyz… Winnie Cooper’s Sasquatch! 2011 review! Words by Dolly Compton.
TOP TEN SHOWS:
• Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
• Sleigh Bells
• The Antlers
• White Arrows
• Foster the People
• Das Racist
• Matt and Kim
DAY 1 FRIDAY HIGHLIGHTS:
DFA 1979: I had to keep myself from headbanging too hard so my neck wouldn’t be too sore for the rest of the weekend.
Foo Fighters: Dave Grohl is a modern icon, and he brought out Bob Mould from Hüsker Dü who shredded like he’d risen from hell.
DAY 2 SATURDAY HIGHLIGHTS:
Aloe Blacc: I need a dollar…
The Antlers: Fantastic performance in broad daylight! The sunshine made their set more powerful and surreal than they’ve been at indoors venues in the past.
Washed Out: Ernest Greene tapped into the house market with a booming four-to-the-floor that overpowered the twinkling melodies and pillow-talk vocals.
The Glitch Mob: 3 iPad nerds geeking out on some heavy synth and drum machine apps and putting on a better show than Bassnectar (due2power)
Matt and Kim: They sampled every hip hop great and Kim did a handstand while shaking her booty like you would not believe.
Sleigh Bells: Alexis Krauss is the hottest bitch on the planet! Combining everything you could want: bangin’ beats and metal.
Robyn: Sasquatch! 2011 had so many amazing female performers. Robyn ate a banana on stage and, as one of my friends put it, was dancing “like she was from another planet.”
DAY 3 SUNDAY HIGHLIGHTS:
Beach House: Another female babe, Victoria Legrand commanded the hearts of every girl and the loins of every boy in the audience. It was sunny and beautiful during their set and I wept during “Take Care.”
Cold War Kids: My friends were passed out drunk in front of City and Colour so I went to the mainstage where Cold War Kids were surprisingly great!
Flogging Molly: Everyone caught a second wind for this set and jumped around dancing to Irish punk.
Das Racist: They pulled off the best audience interaction all weekend, making people choose between laughing and dancing. A white girl in a red bikini flashed them and Dap told her to “Eat something.”
Gold Panda: Money set in the Banana Shack dance tent. Expected nothing less.
Flying Lotus: A huge crowd came for Flying Lotus and you could tell he was just as stoked as they were.
MSTRKRFT: #FrenchHouse! I felt like I couldn’t dance hard enough for how good this show was.
Ratatat: Amazing visuals. They had a giant 3-D parrot that was hanging out on the side of the stage. The audience all looked like they were having out of body experiences.
DAY 4 MONDAY HIGHLIGHTS:
Black Mountain: Vancouver’s own! Dark, dance-able rock. So so good.
White Arrows: All these guys are babes. The crowd quadrupled during their set.
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings: Soul good on the mainstage. Sharon wore a royal blue flapper dress and had everyone on their feet getting down to soul jams like this or this.
Foster the People: Every Sasquatch bro’s summer anthem
!!! (“Chk Chk Chk”): Lead singer Nic Offer was gyrating like Prince, strutting into the crowd to ham and steal the audience’s clothing. Glad I saw it!
Skrillex: Dub-step sweetheart Skrillex opened the door from a room of brostep euphoria LFOs into some hallways of dnb roots, dancehall, and not enough French house.
Major Lazer: Diplo and Switch ended Sasquatch! 2011 with a rager in the dance tent, narrowly avoiding a bum-rush after inviting ten girls onstage, and telling the audience that they were going to “F*ck everybody.”
THE ONE TO WATCH:
DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid: Portland bollyhood DJs who played an unprecedented all four days! Catch them in Portland before they get too big!
Yeasayer: Somewhere along the line these guys decided they wanted to be a boring indie rock band. They played mostly their new album with a neutered version of “O.N.E.” and you could tell they were bored. At least change your name if you’re going to be a completely different band.
Best Coast: Expectedly sarcastic, unexpectedly boring.
