From California, Cold War Kids Nathan Willet, Dann Gallucci, Matt Maust and Matt Aveiro make up this indie rock band, along with previous member Jonnie Russell. The band started playing in 2004, in Russell’s apartment. They released their first EP in 2005, and then while on tour, they finished two more in 2006. Later that summer, they signed a contract with Downtown records and soon released an LP. They wrote two more albums, Loyalty to Loyalty (2008) and Mine Is Yours (2011) and just finished their third, Dear Miss Lonely Hearts. Although they have received many mixed reviews, they have still produced some really catchy songs. I would recommend Cold War Kids to you if you like Grouplove, Ra Ra Riot or Local Natives. Take a listen to these songs, Hang Me Up to Dry and Lost That Easy.
